An opulent Petrus very much in the stylistic family of the 1990 this 100% Merlot has a dense plum/purple color and a sweet nose of mulberries black cherries some subtle toast and licorice as well as a floral element. A wine of great intensity a multidimensional mouthfeel and full-bodied stunning concentration the 2009 Petrus is everything one would expect of it. Given the sweetness of its tannin much like the 1990 I suspect this wine will always be "open for business" appealing even in its youth. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2050+.

This offers a beautiful balance between its two sides: dark fig roasted plum and toast flavors versus racy raspberry cassis and perfumy black tea notes. Silky overall but with terrific latent grip and a mouthwatering minerality that drives through the finish pulling out extra fruit paste and charred spice hints. Very very impressive range. Best from 2018 through 2035.

(100% merlot; 14.2% alcohol; 3.8 pH; 40 ha/hl; a 65% selection; 50% new oak) Fully saturated ruby-red. Mindblowingly intense utterly hedonistic nose redolent of sexy superripe blueberry and blackcurrant complicated by sweet Oriental spices cocoa and coffee. Then creamy-smooth and downright voluptuous with superconcentrated blackberry blueberry and plum flavors complemented by delicate smoke and flint nuances. The utterly palate-saturating finish features silky-smooth tannins and finishing fruits spices and minerals that go on for minutes thanks to harmonious acidity. I should note that the strength of finishing minerality goes beyond what I usually associate with this wine. The final wine may contain 1% cabernet franc but that decision had not been made at the time of this tasting. This wine merits 100 points on the strength of its nose alone.
