Petrus produced the second highest rated wine of the vintage.
The second highest rating though went to no other than Petrus. With its incerdibly iron rich terroir and Olivier Berrouet ‘s masterful winemaking techniques, Petrus again showed its class. Petrus / total points 489 / average rating 97.8
It is no surprise to many folks familiar with the 2015 vintage that the big winner is Chateau Margaux. In fact, the entire appellation did well, led by superstars such as Palmer, Rauzan Segla, Cantenac Brown and Issan. But Chateau Margaux, with its complexity, purity of fruit and total freshness stole the show. Margaux / total points 492.5 / average rating 98.5. An amazing score when you consider that it comes from five separate and distinctly different palates of professionals!
