Displays a solid core of fruit, with spice and cherry. Builds on the palate, with silky-textured tannins and a long finish. Seamless. This was picked before the rain. —J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Petrus 3000ml


Winemaker's Notes:

"Currently closed and backward, this wine seems to share a more similar character to Trotanoy than in any recent vintages I recall. Powerful, structured, masculine, but a long-term proposition, this dark ruby/purple-colored wine displays notes of caramelized, sweet black cherries and wild berry fruit with plenty of spice, earth, and a hint of herbaceousness. The wine has very high tannins, impressive concentration, but that mouth-searing level of tannin. This is one Petrus that should probably be forgotten for at least 8-10 years and drunk over the following two to three decades. I always find it ironic that Petrus, which is virtually 100% Merlot, is more backward than the first growths of Medoc, which are Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated." --Robert Parker

<p>This is a full-bodied red wine. Wine Spectator&rsquo;s James Suckling observes a &ldquo;sold core of berry and chocolate character&rdquo; as well as &ldquo;round tannins and a medium finish.&rdquo;</p>
