Tasting Notes Petrus 2002

91+

Tasted blind at Farr's 2002 Bordeaux tasting. It is difficult to get my head around this nose, with ripe black cherries, plum and damson on one side, but a touch of greenness on the other. However, the palate is superb: very harmonious with sensuous, filigree tannins, quite conservative and reserved with a touch of liquorices and sous-bois on the finish. When I discovered this was Petrus, I am convinced this wine is at an awkward, adolescent stage and so should not be touched for another 3-4 years, by which time it should coalesce. Tasted October 2009.

A relatively strong effort for this vintage, but hardly one of the profound examples of Petrus, this wine exhibits a dark plum color and a somewhat monolithic, foursquare personality with notes of plums, black cherries, licorice, and some herbs and damp earth. Medium-bodied, muscular, and tannic, but lacking some charm and sweetness, it should age nicely for 12-15 more years and possibly be even better than my score. Readers who buy it should not even attempt opening a bottle for at least 4-5 years.
