1970 Petrus Bordeaux - 98 Pts!!

Petrus is easily Pomerol's most important wine, and is one of the most notable estates in Bordeaux. The Merlot-based wine comes from an 11.4-hectare (28-acre) vineyard in the eastern part of the Pomerol appellation, and is known for being rich and powerful, with characteristics of chocolate, spice and black fruit. Petrus is one of the world's most collectable and expensive wines.

The original 7-hectare (17-acre) vineyard is located on a mound where the soil is almost all clay, unlike nearby properties where there is more gravel or sand in the soil. The high clay content is particularly suitable for Merlot – a unique second layer of dense blue clay forces root systems to spread sideways. This feature is often credited with giving Petrus its soft but abundant tannins. The remaining vineyard was acquired from neighboring Château Gazin in 1969.

Rating 98 RP - The dark garnet rust-rimmed 1970 Petrus has developed magnificently over the last 4-5 years. Tight and reserved early in life it has blossomed into a true blockbuster. This massive highly-extracted full-bodied jammy thick unctuously-textured wine possesses a huge spice tobacco black cherry mocha-scented nose. It is a real turn-on. The wine is fully mature but it has at least 20 years of life remaining. This spectacular Petrus is now superior to the 1971 which out-performed it for nearly two decades. Owners of this wine have a true nectar in their cellars. RP
