The style of Petrus is unique. It can be the most aromatically complex wine of Pomerol, filled with spice, coffee, cinnamon, chocolate, plums, dark cherries, truffles, wet earth and fresh flowers. In the best vintages, the texture is other worldly. It has a richness and viscosity, as well as silk and velvet feel that no other Bordeaux wine can offer. Petrus requires time to develop. Even though it’s produced from almost 100% Merlot, Pétrus is one of the longest lived Bordeaux wines produced. An interview with Olivier Berrouet looks at the challenges facing the 2013 vintage, as well as the resulting wine.
