Owned by the Arnaud family for 200 years until the end of World War II. Petrus was acquired by Jean Pierre Moueix in 1964 and still belongs to the Moueix family as of today.
The exceptional Chateau Petrus delivers a very unique wine following strict and traditional winemaking methods.
The estate was among the first in Bordeaux to implement green-harvesting as a way to lower crop yields and raise the quality of the remaining grapes. 

From this unique soil and terroir, Petrus only produces one wine.


The 28.5 acre vineyard of Petrus is situated at the top of the highest elevation on the eastern part of the Pomerol plateau and is planted to 100% Merlot grapes.

The blue clay subsoils of Petrus are what make the wines so special. Petrus is distinctive as its entire vineyard is right on top of the clay, while neighboring vineyards only have a portion of blue clay in their soils. 


The 11.5-hectare vineyard of Pétrus is located on a plateau in the eastern portion of Pomerol; 100% is planted with Merlot grapes. 
The soil consists of a high percentage of blue clay. 
The yield is among the lowest in Bordeaux, partly through green-harvesting to concentrate the power and quality of the remaining crop (eliminating up to 50% of the crop in certain years).


Petrus’ new cellars abut the vineyard, which is located at the highest point of the appellation. This offers natural drainage.
Olivier Berrouet is the winemaker and director of the estate, where the grapes are hand-harvested over 5-6 days and fermented in temperature controlled concrete tanks.
Young wine is aged in 50% new French oak for 18 months after a strict pre-assemblage vat selection.
Severe pre-assemblage vat selection is carried out and certain parcels are rejected from the Grand Vin.


Petrus delivers intense colored wines, complex nose and sumptuous fruit.

93 Points (James Suckling)
"Gorgeous subtle aromas of crushed raspberries and light vanilla, with hints of spices. Medium- to full-bodied, with wonderfully seductive, silky tannins. Beautiful slinky finish. Pétrus is very fine indeed in this vintage. Not overdone, all in the right place. Best after 2009. 1,665 cases made."

Best paired with roast chicken, duck, lamb chops, roasted, braised and grilled dishes, game, tuna, and pasta dishes.
