The most expensive wine in all of Bordeaux is located on its Right Bank in the tiny appellation of Pomerol. Here sits an estate where the mere whisper of its name in a room of wine connoisseurs garners fixated attention… Petrus. Prices for Petrus have been on par with the First Growths of the Medoc since the mid 18th century, but it really came to prominence in the US in the latter half of the 20th century with President John F. Kennedy proclaiming Petrus as a favorite, and later, American wine critic Robert Parker, Jr. extolling its virtues. The estate is planted to 100% Merlot on the famed “blue clay” of Pomerol producing a wine that will age for decades. This is the most aromatically complex wine in Pomerol with sumptuous concentration, and a texture that can only be described as transcendent.
