It seems to need more coaxing from the glass but the color is virtually identical a dense ruby/purple with no lightening at the edge. In the mouth the wine cuts a broad swath with spectacular intensity richness massive concentration and high levels of tannin yet the wine is fabulously well-delineated and like its sibling the 1990 has a finish that goes on for nearly a minute. It does not seem to be quite as evolved as the 1990 and my instincts suggest there is a bit more tannin but both are as prodigious as Petrus can be. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040. -Bordeaux Book 4th Edition

Still dark-ruby colored with beautiful aromas of fruits and spices. Full-bodied with opulent fruit and a depth of flavor that lasts for minutes on the palate. Loads of tobacco and fruit.--Pétrus non-blind vertical. Best after 2010. -JS

Full deep red. Flamboyant aromas of red berry liqueur earth truffle and exotic woodsmoke. Hugely sweet and fat with great ripeness and opulence and marvelous chewy depth. Finishes with huge but ripe tongue-dusting tannins... Full deep red. Flamboyant aromas of red berry liqueur earth truffle and exotic woodsmoke. Hugely sweet and fat with great ripeness and opulence and marvelous chewy depth. Finishes with huge but ripe tongue-dusting tannins and fabulous persistence. Drink 2005 to 2025.
