Chateau Petrus 2001 Pomerol

3,500.00

 

Merlot

Petrus is one of the most celebrated wines of Bordeaux and without contest the most famous wine of Pomerol of which it is the supreme archetype. Two persons are at the origin of the fame of this exceptional wine: Madame Loubat who transformed its – until then – anonymous reputation, and Jean-Pierre Moueix who made it into a great wine. Petrus has only one fault: the small size of its vineyard at 11.42 hectares or 28 acres. Added to the relatively advanced age of its vines and low yields (the amount of grapes on the vine), that makes for only 30 000 bottles that the entire world cries out for.

About This Wine...

“The 2001 Petrus (2,160 cases produced) exhibits more depth and richness than any other Pomerol I tasted. Its deep saturated ruby/plum/purple color is accompanied by a tight but promising bouquet of vanilla, cherry liqueur, melted licorice, black currants, and notions of truffles and earth. Rich, full-bodied, and surprisingly thick as well as intense, there is plenty of structure underlying the wealth of fruit and extract. Give it 3-6 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following two decades as it promises to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage, not to mention one of the most concentrated. Drink 2007 – 2027.”

95/100 Robert Parker 2004

 

“Very thick and sweet. Dense and spicy. Rich. Dry finish. Jewelly. Very sweet. Round. Really chocolatey and rich. Fun. This has to be Pétrus, surely? Drink 2012 – 2035.”

18.5/20 Jancis Robinson 2011
