It is hard to call Petrus a "sleeper of the vintage" but the 2008 will merit more attention than most consumers would think. Low yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare resulted in only 25000 bottles of this beauty. A wine of great intensity (possibly the most concentrated wine of the vintage) this 100% Merlot boasts a dark purple color as well as a sweet perfume of mocha caramel black cherries black currants earth and forest floor. Deep unctuously textured full-bodied and pure it will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring and should drink well for 25-30+ years.

Captivating aromas of blackberry black cherry flowers licorice and Oriental spices are lifted by hints of white pepper and soy sauce. Rich and concentrated yet suave on entry then sweet but with outstanding grip in the middle with harmonious acidity providing terrific lift and definition to the multifaceted opulent flavors of dark berries mocha iron and spices. This massive exotic wine coats the entire palate without conveying any impression of weight; its remarkably smooth finish lasts for minutes. One of the top three wines of the vintage and a remarkable Petrus. 95+

This has texture and range that's a step up from the pack with agorgeous silky feel to the ripe but restrained cherry raspberry and damson plum notes that are layered with hints of black tea incense and mineral. The long finish is more about poise than power. Lovely. Drink now through 2020. From France.-J.M.
