Châ​teau Petrus 1947 Pomerol

Châ​teau Petrus is undisputedly the top wine estate in the Bordeaux right-bank appellation of Pomerol and rightly lays claim to being one of the most famous estates in the world of wine.  Unofficially recognised as a "Premier Grand Cru" (no such classification exists in Pomerol), Petrus is considered first-among-equals with the likes of Mouton- and Lafite-Rothschild in regards to both quality and iconic stature.

While the modern wines of Chateau Petrus are almost entirely Merlot, pre-1960s the wine was more typical of other Pomerol and St-Emilion estates as a blend of approximately 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

This 1947 vintage bottle is labelled for Belgian wine-merchant, J.Vandermeulen-Decanniere of Ostende, Belgium.
