We suspect that when Robert Louis Stevenson wrote, “Wine is bottled poetry,” there was a half-full bottle of Petrus on his desk. Managed by Christian Moueix, the estate in Pomerol has somehow captured in a single vintage, 2007, all the centuries-old mystery and magic of Bordeaux. Composed mostly of Merlot, the wine smolders with treasure from Pomerol and captures the fascination of many years of Bordeaux excellence with its allspice, dark-chocolate, caramel, and blackberry-jam flavors.
