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.”

“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.”
