Parker über: Chateau Petrus

-- Parker: Opaque purple-black colored, the 2016 Petrus slips effortlessly out of the glass with sanguine, seductive notes of kirsch, warm black plums, blueberry compote, red roses, Ceylon tea, violets, dark chocolate-covered cherries, licorice and cinnamon stick with wafts of iron ore, pencil lead, unsmoked cigars and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, profound and absolutely edifying on the palate, the densely packed, beautifully perfumed red and blue fruit layers possess a charge like defibrillators stimulating your heart to beat faster, each delivering achingly subtle floral and spice sparks, perfectly framed by very firm, very grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing with incredible length and taking you to depths that extend to a provocative ferrous undercurrent. Stunning. 100/100


Suckling über: Chateau Petrus

-- Suckling: This is a muscular Petrus that is so compacted and powerful. Full-bodied, yet tight and intense. I haven’t tasted something like this for a long time. The tannins are exquisitely fine-grained, the finish mind-binding. It’s the combination of violets and dark fruit that’s just so enticing. Just crushed grapes and crystal-clear purity. 99-100/100


Decanter über: Chateau Petrus

-- Decanter: Bottled in mid-August, this is already taking on the most amazing slow creep of well-defined, crisp violet, cassis, tight black fruits and fig notes; floral and fresh yet complex and ripe. It's balanced by the most gorgeous burst of mint and slate, all stretching out slowly, delicately, gently. It's more architectural than the monumental 2015, but no less impressive, beginning to really settle and take its time to gather its forces, to layer itself up. A pure, precise style, it holds your attention for many many minutes after the wine has gone, both aromatically and intellectually. The overall impression is simply of pleasure. 50% new oak. 99/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Chateau Petrus

-- Wine Enthusiast: A wine with the potential for 100 points, this is velvety, with blackberry fruit and a rich texture. It is intense, seductive and a real charmer, while at the same time, there are hugely dense tannins that support the fruit. It is a superb wine both for its generous character and for its immense structure. Keep for decades. 98–100/100

Mein Winzer


Ist Petrus nun der berühmteste Rotwein der Welt? Aller Wahrscheinlichkeit nach ja. In jedem Fall ist er aber einer der mit der größten Sorgfalt produzierten Weine der Welt. Bis vor kurzem wurde neben dem Merlot auch ein Teil Cabernet Sauvignon angebaut. Jean-François Moueix, der Eigentümer von...
