Reviews for 1999 Petrus Bordeaux Blend

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2002
This wine is turning out much in the style of such wonderful Petrus vintages as 1967 and 1971. Although not as outstanding as either the 1998 or 2000 it displays beautiful intensity and finesse in a more evolved style... This wine is turning out much in the style of such wonderful Petrus vintages as 1967 and 1971. Although not as outstanding as either the 1998 or 2000 it displays beautiful intensity and finesse in a more evolved style than one normally expects from this estate. The wine has a dense nearly opaque ruby/purple color sweet black cherry mulberry truffle-infused fruit full body low acidity admirable purity and sweet tannin. It should be ready to drink in 5-6 years and will last for two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030. Only 2400 cases were produced.

Full ruby-red. Cool brooding aromas of blackberry liqueur violet smoke and minerals. Concentrated densely packed minerally and precise; brisk acids contribute to the impression of coolness. Firm youthfully austere finish... Full ruby-red. Cool brooding aromas of blackberry liqueur violet smoke and minerals. Concentrated densely packed minerally and precise; brisk acids contribute to the impression of coolness. Firm youthfully austere finish. Not as lush or open today as the Lafleur but this is longer on the aftertaste. I'm not sure I would have picked this blind as a '99. 91-93 points

A pretty fruity red with beautiful tobacco berry and cedar. Medium-bodied with good soft tannins and a pretty finish.--Pétrus non-blind vertical. Drink now. 2080 cases made. -JS
