      Product: Petrus 1990 75cl

      In 1990, Château Petrus, the esteemed winery behind this wine, crafted a masterpiece that has since become legendary among wine enthusiasts and collectors. Petrus is predominantly made from Merlot grapes, with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc. The Merlot grape thrives in the Pomerol terroir and contributes to the wine's signature plushness and opulence. The vineyards of Château Petrus are situated on a unique plateau with a distinct soil composition, including a high iron content. This terroir imparts distinctive characteristics to the wine, including its rich fruit flavors and a unique mineral quality. The 1990 vintage in Bordeaux is considered exceptional. Ideal weather conditions, including a warm and dry growing season, resulted in grapes of remarkable ripeness and quality. This vintage is often praised for producing wines of great concentration and depth.

      Petrus 1990 is renowned for its opulent and complex flavor profile. It offers a bouquet of ripe dark fruits such as plums and black cherries, often accompanied by notes of truffle, tobacco, and cedar. The wine's texture is velvety, and its fine tannins provide structure and balance. Petrus wines, especially those from exceptional vintages like 1990, have extraordinary aging potential. They can continue to evolve and improve for several decades when stored under ideal conditions. The 1990 vintage has proven to be remarkably age-worthy. Petrus is known for its limited production, and the 1990 vintage is particularly scarce due to its age and reputation. Petrus 1990 represents the epitome of Pomerol winemaking and is an embodiment of luxury, elegance, and exceptional craftsmanship. Whether enjoyed on a special occasion or added to a fine wine collection, Petrus 1990 is a true gem in the world of wine, showcasing the timeless appeal of Bordeaux's finest offerings.
