Winemaker's Notes:

The 1996 Petrus is a big, monolithic, foursquare wine with an impressively<br/>opaque purple color, and sweet berry fruit intermixed with earth, pain grille,<br/>and coffee scents. Full-bodied and muscular, with high levels of tannin, and a<br/>backward style, this wine (less than 50% of the production was bottled as<br/>Petrus) will require patience. It is a mammoth example. <br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate)
