The best wines of Bordeaux 2017

Petrus

2016 release price: £22,000/cs
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW: 93-95
Julia Harding MW: 18.5
James Suckling: 97-98
Neal Martin: 94-96

Wine of the vintage? Perhaps, though as referred to earlier, Lafite, Lafleur and Mouton certainly seem to get the critical thumbs up as well and should be counted top contenders.

Perrotti-Brown in particular has not rated it too terribly highly, nor Martin. Alcohol levels are reportedly quite high, comfortably above 14.5% which might put some off.

It’s “reassuringly ‘Petrus’,” thought Martin but he wouldn’t rank it as one of the estate’s best efforts of recent years.

Then again, for buyers of Petrus is that really a concern?
