    Who are you going to trust, the random proles behind "internet websites," or Petrus, who has been literally bathing in first growths since the day he was born? I think we all know the answer here...

    conceded.

    Can you provide a pic or a gif for some lulz?

    I also like the thought that the varietal of the grape is not "important." I think this is the best lulz in his whole schtick, particularly since he dismissed wine made from Concord grapes (which is correct, but not in keeping with the concept).

    Icewine from Tempranillo? Something light and bubbly from Syrah?


    Yes. This news will also come as a surprise to the various AOCs who legislate what grape varietals can be planted there. I look forward to tasting Syrah based Bordeaux in the coming years. After all, only the terroir matters anyway.

    I will try. Here is a self-portrait Petrus sent me for our team's t-shirts:

    With or without the porn chic he pictured as his woman?

    They're really all just barrel selections and the names for the chateau's 2nd wine and in some cases 3rd wine sometimes change.
    The 3rd is now actually named Pauillac de Pichon Lalande, and the 2nd ,Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande


    [​IMG]

    Ingenious. Bravo sir. Whoever you are, bravo.

    The 2nd is actually called Reserve de la Comtesse and Clos de Marquis is , albeit atypically, produced in a separate vineyard from the 1st wine which is labeled Leoville-Las Cases.

    Bravo. Great job stirring up us proles with wonderfully crafted misstatements

    lol Petrus is hilarious and awesome. I read this thread 4x more since he started trolling.

    In order to contribute, I will note that icewine is terrible.

    [\\Petrus1] Just let me quickly explain that icewine is actually made from grapes that are left on the vine after frost begins in the winter. The frost happens because the temperature drops. When the temperature drops below freezing, the grapes actually freeze. This is how icewine happens - in germany it is called eiswine, which is german for ice-wine. [\\Petrus1]

    Additionally, Petrus's moostasch is impeccably waxed, not shaggy and proleesq. Your photo of him is also missing the duel monocles he wears as a mark of distinction.
