The 2001 Petrus (2160 cases produced) exhibits more depth and richness than any other Pomerol I tasted. Its deep saturated ruby/plum/purple color is accompanied by a tight but promising bouquet of vanilla cherry liqueur melted licorice black currants and notions of truffles and earth. Rich full-bodied and surprisingly thick as well as intense there is plenty of structure underlying the wealth of fruit and extract. Give it 3-6 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades as it promises to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage not to mention one of the most concentrated.

This is very youthful almost like a barrel sample. Some might say it is still in a dumb stage yet there's plenty of body and richness with blackberry and toasted oak character verging on coffee.

Some might say it is still in a dumb stage yet there's plenty of body and richness with blackberry and toasted oak character verging on coffee. Very long. A beauty.--Pétrus vertical. Best after 2007. 2000 cases made. (JS)

Very thick and sweet. Dense and spicy. Rich. Dry finish. Jewelly. Very sweet. Round. Really chocolatey and rich. Fun. This has to be Pétrus, surely? 18.5/20

Very ripe but subdued nose hints at mulberry, caramel, toffee, iron and nutty oak. Very ripe, broad and deep but quite closed today; lush and full but classically dry and light on its feet. Red berry and mineral flavors coat the palate. Builds impressively on the very long, gripping finish. I would not be surprised if this very suave Petrus merited a higher score a decade down the road. 92+
