The 2011 Petrus has a very refined perhaps slightly introverted bouquet with extraordinary purity. It has quite amazing precision and lifted with black cherries raspberry and a touch of vanilla. It is very intense perhaps more like 2009 at this stage than 2010. The palate is medium-bodied with a powerful entry. There is a touch of spice on the entry and very intense fruit. The tannins are tensile lending this Petrus edginess and minerality. This has classic Petrus written all over it. It is not quite up there with the 2009 or 2010 but its not far off. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 Petrus has a very refined, perhaps slightly introverted bouquet with extraordinary purity. It has quite amazing precision and lifted with black cherries, raspberry and a touch of vanilla. It is very intense, perhaps more like 2009 at this stage than 2010. The palate is medium-bodied with a powerful entry. There is a touch of spice on the entry and very intense fruit. The tannins are tensile, lending this Petrus edginess and minerality. This has “classic” Petrus written all over it...95-97" Neal Martin’s Wine Journal 4/12 "Barrel sample. This is elegant, fresh and structured, with its blackberry fruit shining right through the wood. Style trumps power in this wine...95" WE 4/12 "This is very racy and long with full body, silky tannins and an intense minerally, citrus rind character. It lasts for minutes. Goes to a pleasant bitterness. Dark chocolate too. Muscular with tension. 93+" JS 04/12 "A strong pebbly feel weaves through the crushed damson plum and linzer torte notes, with a sweet spice edge starting to peek out on the bitter cherry-tinged finish. Not tightly knit yet, but shows solid length and concentration for the vintage...91-94" WS 04/12
