  • Neal Martin, July 2019, Score: 98+

    The 2015 Petrus has a fresh, detailed yet quite understated bouquet of black fruit, pencil box, smoke and light tarry aromas - very succinct and classy. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, and linear and quite strict in style, which might explain why I knocked off a point compared to my note in January 2018. But it gently builds in intensity to a grippy, graphite-infused finish with that subtle Japanese seaweed tincture I observed previously. Classic in style, this will benefit from several years in bottle. Excellent. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

  • Neal Martin, April 2016, Score: 98-100

    The 2015 Petrus is, of course, 100% Merlot picked between September 15-29 , although the secateurs were only used on six of those days with a majority coming toward the end of that period. Olivier Berrouet told me that it will be matured in 50% new oak. It has an extremely precise, controlled bouquet with crystalline red and black fruit. This is not a powerful or intense bouquet, but beguilingly pretty. It is crystalline and I detected more mineralité than in recent vintages, perhaps because there is less puppy fat. The palate is beautifully balanced, completely harmonious, underpinned by filigree tannin that assert a sense of focus and linearity until two-thirds of the way along, whereupon it fans out while maintaining breathtaking clarity. Touches of cracked black pepper and spice lend this Petrus personality and intrigue. Having tasted most legendary Petrus since the 1940s, and tasted here from barrel since 2002, I can only apologize for being so predictable by claiming that this may well nestle among the likes of the Petrus 1950, 1964, 1989 and 1998. Drink 2025-2060

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2016, Score: 95-97

    The 2015 Pétrus is dark, brooding and also fiercely tannic, which sets it apart from most Pomerols of the year stylistically. Vertical in feel, the 2015 possesses terrific energy and cut to balance the dark, super-ripe fruit. Winemaker Oliver Berrouet adds that the berries were considerable smaller (about 30%) than normal, which resulted in high skin-to-juice ratios consequently musts with high levels of tannin. The 2015 is a vertical, brooding Pétrus that shows little of the early appeal of so many other wines. Readers will have to be especially patient.

  • James Suckling, April 2016, Score: 100

    A wine that makes me dream and touches my soul. Such amazing purity and density yet the tannins and acidity are in perfect balance. The freshness and quality tannins is second to none. It’s a redefinition of some of the great Petrus such as 1971 and 1961 that didn’t have the precision or clarity of today.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2016, Score: 19.5+

    (100 Merlot) | 50% new oak. | 14.5% alc. There is fascinating restraint on the nose and also very controlled delivery of flavour on the palate which is unnerv¬ing and impressive in equal measure. Unlike many Pomerols in 2015, there is no explosion of aromatic intensity and sweetness, nor is there any noticeable oak or heat. The absence of lushness and overt fruit makes you dive deeper into the glass and when you immerse yourself in this wine you find elemental power and immense length. The tempo with which this wine unravels is determined by the wine and not by the taster. Seemingly lighter and more tender than some vintages, but still with latent power and intensity, this is a beguiling wine with layers of silky fruit and hypnotic depth. As it opens in the glass there is no trace of exuberance, just a controlled, measured release of energy. Rather than a wine which is maquillé this wine has natural, unforced beauty and the reason for its individuality and depth of fruit is the extremely long extraction. The fruit was in such good condition that rather than a typically short fermentation they decided to allow the pristine fruit the opportunity to extract profound, deeper notes that are rarely seen. The word ‘natural’ is bandied about these days and yet it is rarely used in these instances - the elemental, natural beauty of this vintage of Pétrus is utterly compelling.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2016, Score: 18.5

    Picked 15-29 September. Long period for such a small property! pH 3.7. Not the deepest crimson of the lot. Exotic, super-charming nose. And lovely freshness on the palate. Almost Cabernet Franc-like (very ripe Cabernet Franc)! Hint of decongestant medicine! Something sweet and peppery. Not too big, but super-opulent. Great charm and intensity on the palate. Quite difficult to see the tannins; they emerge only at the end. You shouldn't need to wait too long for this. Wonderful persistence. The most beautiful ink you will ever encounter. Lots of energy. 14.6% Drink 2025-2045

  • Tim Atkin, May 2016, Score: 98

    A stunning wine from the ever-youthful Olivier Berrouet and his team, which may well get 100 points from me on release in bottle. Who needs Cabernet Franc for added freshness in 2015 when you have a terroir and winemaking as good as this? Pure, subtle and refined, this has more tannin and backbone than you think. It’s just that the fruit is so seductive you don’t notice it. A wine that justifies some of the hype about the vintage. Drink: 2025-40

  • Wine Spectator, April 2016, Score: 91-94

    Offers a juicy feel, with lots of singed anise and fruitcake notes out in front of the dark plum and blackberry fruit. Delivers ample spice through the finish. Flirts with the exotic side, but there’s focus and cut here.

Producer

Château Pétrus

Undoubtedly one of the most celebrated and sought after estates in Bordeaux, Château Pétrus needs little introduction. This legendary chateau is owned by the Libournais merchant JP Moueix. Pétrus' vineyards are on the eastern side of the Pomerol appellation towards St. Emilion and are planted principally with Merlot with a smattering of Cabernet Franc. The style is famously opulent and complex.

Region

Pomerol

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
