Château Petrus is one of the most celebrated and distinguished wines in the world. It is therefore difficult to comprehend that the wine was, until recently, relatively cheap and difficult to sell. It was not until the middle of the 20th century that its reputation was finally cemented, making it a globally sought-after wine and a blue-chip collectable.
Prior to the current success of Petrus, the estate was owned by the Arnaud family for almost two hundred years. It was only after Madame Loubat, who had progressively acquired pieces of the property since 1925, became the sole owner at the end of World War II that the Château’s wines began to flourish on the world market.
