Chateau Petrus 2006

 374,000.00

The 2006 Chateau Petrus wine is a Cellar Selection. After the fabulous 2005, Chateau Petrus again has produced a magnificent wine in 2006. This Pomerol wine has an immensely powerful structure and concentration. The structure of this 2006 Petrus is almost masked by the superbly ripe and fresh fruit. And with all this weight, there is still a sense of proportion, the rich berry fruits, smokiness and light spice beautifully integrated. This is one Petrus that should probably be forgotten for at least 8-10 years and drunk over the following two to three decades.

The vineyard, situated on the plateau in Pomerol on the right bank of the Gironde estuary, had been planted almost entirely with Merlot (95%). Only 5% was reserved for Cabernet Franc, but in 2010 they changed to 100% Merlot grapes.
