Petrus is one of the most, if not the most, renowned wines in the world, with some of the most expensive bottle sales ever recorded. The high-demand Pomerol is located nearby St Emillion, a small property of just 28 acres, yet producing one of the most iconic wines in the world. Using exclusively Merlot and no second wine, the etiquette is one of the most prestigious in the world. Although the wines of Pomerol have never been classified, unlike St Emilion, you can be sure that a bottle of Petrus is one of the very finest of the appellation. The vintages 1921, 1929, 1947, 1961, 1989, 1990, 2000, 2009, and 2010 all received a score of 100/100 from critic Robert Parker.
