Petrus, Pomerol, 2014

Tasting Note:

The 2014 Petrus is an outstanding wine, which is close in quality to the profound 2012. The 2012 at this stage would have the edge in terms of power and density, but the 2014 ranks as one of the most gentile and aristocratic wines we tasted this vintage. Produced from 100% Merlot on the exceptional and almost unique blue clay soils, this exudes class and nobility. There is a glorious yet understated intensity, vivid high-toned fruit, and earthy complexity, with notes of mulberries and decadent cherries; this is so polished with such a silky texture and fine grained tannins one almost misses them altogether. Texturally suave, profoundly complex, beautifully perfumed and with impeccable balance - this is a tour de force - a bringing together of exceptional terroir and understanding wine-making. A staggeringly beautiful Petrus.
