This bottle of Petrus shows nicely ripened fruit without the more aggressive tannins one would fine in a riper vintage.


Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2001 Petrus (2,160 cases produced) exhibits more depth and richness than<br/>any other Pomerol I tasted. Its deep saturated ruby/plum/purple color is<br/>accompanied by a tight but promising bouquet of vanilla, cherry liqueur, melted<br/>licorice, black currants, and notions of truffles and earth. Rich, full-bodied,<br/>and surprisingly thick as well as intense, there is plenty of structure<br/>underlying the wealth of fruit and extract. Give it 3-6 years of cellaring, and<br/>drink it over the following two decades as it promises to be one of the<br/>longest-lived wines of the vintage, not to mention one of the most<br/>concentrated."<br/><br/>(Robert Parker - www.erobertparker.com - 30-Jun-2004)<br/><br/>
