Tasting Notes Petrus 1986

92

This is a far superior bottle to the one yesterday. An intense, earthy nose with wet sand, savory fruits, leather and a touch of apricots. The palate is medium to full-bodied, good acidity with much more vigor than I expected. Still a little linear and less complex than great Petrus, this has a masculine, conservative finish that like the distant cousin of a Pauillac. Tasted December 2006. Drinking now- 2015

This is another wine made during the period when Christian Moueix and his conservative oenologist, Jean-Charles Berrouet, were obviously harvesting very early and also, to my mind, doing entirely too much fining and filtration before the wine got in bottle. My cask tasting notes were significantly higher on all the vintages in the early to mid-eighties, but as most of the wines have aged in the bottle, they have become increasingly weedy, herbaceous, with Medoc-like austerity and excessive tannins for the meager fruit. The 1986 is showing medium ruby/garnet color with considerable amber at the edge. The indifferent bouquet offers up notes of roasted vegetables, Japanese green tea, some smoke, a hint of sweet cherry, and some loamy, earthy, almost mushroomy notes in the background. The wine is austere on the palate, with high tannin and moderate fruit. For Petrus, this is a major disappointment and continues to decline in quality. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. Last tasted, 11/02.
