Description :

A magical effort from Petrus, the 2000 has continued to gain weight and stature. From the bottle, it is a perfect wine, much like the 1998. The color is inky plum/purple to the rim and the nose, which starts slowly, begins to roar after several minutes, offering up scents of smoke, blackberries, cherries, licorice

Château Petrus

Château Petrus Grand Cru Classé Pomerol 

Is Petrus today the most famous estate in Bordeaux ? If this is so it would hardly be surprising; Petrus is one of a trio of right bank wines, the others being Le Pin and Ausone, which now sell at astronomical prices, typically thousands of pounds, dollars or euros per case if not per bottle.

As Clive Coates wrote in 1995 in Grands Vins, "Many of the top wines of Pomerol, I suspect, are known more by their reputation than by actual tasting experience".

The vines are trained low, and many are very old, with an average age in excess of 45 years. The heritage of the vineyard has been protected by both Loubat and Moueix over the years; after the devastating frost of 1956 Loubat refused to replant, instead grafting new vines onto the surviving rootstocks; some of these half-old, half ancient vines still populate the vineyard today. Since then, whereas it is usual to replace individual deceased vines with new, Moueix has resisted, ensuring the age of the vineyard remains high, and replanting whole blocks when it is ultimately necessary.

The ultimate yield is typically in the order of 35 hl/ha. In the cellars, which sit unprepossessingly at the side of one of the many minor roads that criss-cross the Pomerol appellation, the process of converting grape into wine follows a fairly standard pattern. There is a sorting before pressing and fermentation in thermoregulated concrete tanks, with maceration of the skins for 18-25 days. There is malolactic fermentation in a mix of oak and vat, and blending takes place in December before the barrel ageing per se begins, using 100% new wood. The wine will rest here for up to two years before bottling.


Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 100 points
"A magical effort from Petrus, the 2000 has continued to gain weight and stature. From the bottle, it is a perfect wine, much like the 1998. The color is inky plum/purple to the rim and the nose, which starts slowly, begins to roar after several minutes, offering up scents of smoke, blackberries, cherries, licorice, and an unmistakable truffle/underbrush element. On the palate, this enormous effort is reminiscent of dry vintage port, with fabulous ripeness, a huge, unctuous texture, enormous body, and a colossal 65-second finish. I did not have the benefit of tasting it side by side with the equally perfect 1998, but it appears the 2000 is a more massive, macho/masculine wine, with more obvious tannin and structure than the seamless 1998. It is another wine to add to the legacy of the great vintages of Petrus. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2050." (2003)

Wine Spectator : 98 points
"Dark color, with loads of smoky grilled meat and ripe fruit aromas. Lots of violets. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a superlong finish. Solid and tight. Like a tightly wound piece of silk string. Just as I remember it.--Pétrus non-blind vertical. Best after 2012." (2004)

Stephen Tanzer : 96 points
"Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose combines mulberry, raspberry liqueur, toffee, iron and minerals. Silky and thick on entry, then extremely dense and backward in the middle palate, with superripe notes of liqueur, game and truffle. A remarkably impressive, rather wild Petrus in an almost late-harvest style. Finishes with big, thoroughly ripe tannins and gamey merlot flavors of roasted meats, truffle and red berry liqueur. Like the 2000 Trotanoy, this wine may not match the 1998 for sheer class, but it’s a massive, flamboyantly rich wine with a good 30 to 40 years of development ahead of it." (2003)

Bettane et Desseauve : 19/20
