Petrus has now released its 2014 vintage, and as the Drinks Business reported it is being offered in the UK at £6,810 per 6x75, or £13,620 per 12x75. (The wine does not release via la Place de Bordeaux).
Petrus 2014 is currently cheaper than all recent back vintages, and also scores more highly than several. It receives 93-95 from Neal Martin, who commented that although “it does not have the length of a top tier vintage […] there is real class here”. James Suckling was more effusive, awarding it 95-96 and noting the wine’s “marvellous potential”, while James Molesworth described it as “thoroughly beguiling” and gave 95-98. On a relative basis, the price would seem to make sense for those lucky few who receive an allocation.
