Visit at Pétrus, October 2022


Pétrus, an estate of just 11.41 hectares, is located in the Pomerol appellation near its eastern border to Saint-Emilion. It produces one red wine entirely from Merlot grapes (since the end of 2010) and produces no second wine.

Although the wines of Pomerol have never been classified, Pétrus is widely regarded as the outstanding wine of the appellation.

Located on top of a 20-hectare island mound, the Pétrus boutonnière or buttonhole, Pétrus' original vineyard possesses topsoil and subsoil high in iron-rich clay that differs from neighbouring vineyards, where the soil is a mixture of gravel-sand or clay-sand.

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.

Petrus produces an average of 30,000 bottles per year. The grapes are hand harvested and the wine is aged between 12 and 16 months in oak barrels, half of which are new. The style of Petrus is unique and can be the most aromatically complex wine of Pomerol.

Petrus estate belongs to Jean-François Moueix and his children.
