The wine has a dense, nearly opaque ruby/purple color, sweet black cherry, mulberry, truffle-infused fruit, full body, low acidity, admirable purity, and sweet tannin.
Very rich and spicy, this wine earns its special status in this vintage. Gloriously concentrated and hedonistic. Long and rich - very well done. Huge pleasure promised.
Cool, brooding aromas of blackberry liqueur, violet, smoke and minerals. Concentrated, densely packed, minerally and precise; brisk acids contribute to the impression of coolness. Firm, youthfully austere finish.
Plenty of plum and olive character. Medium- to full-bodied, with pleasant, fine tannins and ripe fruit, and a medium, delicate finish. Pétrus is very fine this year, not its usual powerful self.
