Tasted 11 Times With Consistent Notes The 1947 Petrus is the most decadent "wine of the century." While not as port-like as the 1947 Cheval Blanc it is a massive unctuously-textured viscous wine with amazing power richness and sweet fruit. The nose explodes from the glass offering jammy fruit smoke and buttery caramel scents. The wine's viscosity is reminiscent of 10-W-40 motor oil. It is so sweet thick and rich one suspects a spoon could stand upright. The wine is loaded with dream-like quantities of fruit as well as high alcohol but there is no noticeable tannin. While drinkable now given its amazing fruit extract and high levels of glycerin and alcohol it is capable of lasting two more decades.
