Petrus 2009


Case Format: 3x75cl

Max score: 100.0

Pétrus is one of the world`s rarest and most expensive wines, this tiny estate is unusual for Pomerol in that it is on clay, which is ideal for Merlot. Attention to detail is exact – grapes are only harvested, by hand, in the afternoons, to avoid the morning dew!



Robert M. Parker, Jr.

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 is one of the larger productions of Petrus over recent years, with nearly 3,000 cases of this vintage turned out by proprietor Jean Moueix.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Petrus 2009 has a wonderful graphite tinged bouquet with blackberry, truffle and pencil lead. Utterly composed. The palate is medium-bodied with wonderful purity, filigree tannins, a mineral core and a finish where everything is precise and perfectly place. This is a wine of immense breeding, multi-dimensional and yet once its identity was revealed, you just know its going to get better and better with each passing year. Outstanding, but every bottle should come with a free cellar, padlock and key. Tasted January 2013.
