Wood Wine Crate & Box Profiles: Chateau Petrus

Chateau Petrus:

Country: France

Region: Bordeaux

Sub-region: Pomerol

Classification: Premier Grand Cru, unofficial First Growth
Production: 3,000 - 4,000 cases made every year.

Grape: Over 90% Merlot

Crate design: The Petrus label has beautifully detailed artwork, and is highly recognizable. The deeply engraved design is of two keys behind the Petrus scroll.

Rarity: Extremely rare. Petrus is one of the most expensive wines in the world with a very small production. Petrus is in high demand, and the majority of investors and private collectors who purchase full cases will almost always store the wine in the crate.

Crate designation: Exclusive Class ($150.00)

Our opinion: We generally have 1-2 Petrus crates in stock at any time. Out of approx. 1,000 crates we acquire, 1-2 of these crates are from Chateau Petrus. Petrus crates are usually branded on all four sides, but the major artwork is only on the front side.
