Petrus is undoubtedly one of the most revered wines in the world and is often considered the pinnacle of the Pomerol appellation. Almost always made from 100% Merlot, the style of Petrus is unique and in the best vintages often achieves levels of aromatic complexity, richness and silky texture that others simply cannot. It is an exceptionally long-lived wine and can often require significant cellaring before reaching maturity and expressing its true essence.
The 1990 vintage presented an incredible follow-up to the highly acclaimed 1989 and can certainly be considered amongst the greatest ever releases from Petrus. With more concentration, richness and structure, this can probably be expected to outlive the 1989 but should be superb for drinking now.
