100% merlot. 11.5 hectare estate on blue clay soils with a high iron content. Vines average 45 years in age with yields of 35 hl/ha. Aged in 50% new oak. Opaque with a clay-like tint. Blackberry liqueur and cassis fruit flavors seasoned with fresh brewed espresso and a hint of iron. A licorice mineral element kicks in on the mid-palate. This merlot is truly world class with acid and fruit in balance and its greatest virtue being its spectacularly seamless palate. Drinkable now yet this is Petrus most tannic vintage on record. It s a truly confounding effort and I m not sure what to make of it. One thing is for sure it lacks the structure of the 2010 and 2009. The estate director suggests that the 2011 will be aligned with the 2001 and will develop nicely in bottle. Approachable in its youth enjoy over the following 20 years. 65% of the production of this iconic estate went into the Petrus bottling this year. Neil Mechanic.

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.

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
