Tasting Note:

Is there a more handsome wine in Bordeaux than Petrus? I don't think so, and on this evidence the gap is widening. This is pure seduction in a glass. It has everything: grandeur, complexity, elegance and the most wonderful velour tannins, yet there is nothing forced or heavy, this has understated beauty, pure refinement and class, a calm authority and statesmanlike presence. There is a gentle fragrance, so sensual and alluring. The aromas develop displaying ripe damsons, griotte and flowers. The palate is seductive and opulent yet controlled - there's no excess, just enough flesh and fruit to tantalise. On the finish there is real finesse and power. Understated, well-mannered tannins grip the palate and leave the mouth refreshed with salty berry flavours, terrific detail and poise, such effortless charm. In a vintage when nature has provided some elements in excess, Petrus remains true to itself. Even with 14.5% alcohol and a relatively high pH of 3.7, this is regal and understated, calm and effortless - a classic Petrus in the very best sense.
