2013 petrus, pomerol

Why We're Buying

It might be an understatement to call Pétrus a masterpiece. The merlot has earned an astonishing 11 100-point ratings from wine critic Robert Parker alone and retails north of $2,500 per bottle. As Jeb Dunnuck described the 2018 vintage, “[it] is a brilliant wine that has perfection written all over it.” The staggering price hasn't slowed investors, rising steadily in price from 2017 to 2021.

Critics Scores

Wine Spectator

This has excellent energy for the vintage, with a brambly, well-embedded spine that clearly drives the core of raspberry coulis, bitter plum and bright cherry preserves. Ample spice flickers through the finish, with a judicious hint of singed apple wood for nuance. This fleshes out steadily in the glass too, showing rare depth for the vintage. A great effort. Best from 2018 through 2028. 1,665 cases made.

WINE ENTHUSIAST

Wine Enthusiast

This wine is ripe, juicy and already showing its concentration and depth. It showcases the fruit of the year, deliciously fresh while having a velvet tannic structure. The acidity will continue to keep the wine fresh, allowing the structure to develop slowly. It sings with great fruit and good potential. Drink from 2022.

James Suckling

Very fine and structured with ultra-fine tannins. Medium bodied with beautiful density and texture. It has length and grip for the vintage. Better in 2020.
