Tasting Notes Petrus 2003

95+

Fleshy, fat, and already sexy, the dark plum/purple-tinged 2003 Petrus is exceptionally ripe and rich. While not as exotic as its rival, Lafleur, it is rich, heady, and loaded. A tour de force in winemaking for Pomerol, it vindicates Christian Moueix’s decision to harvest nearly all his Merlot on September 3 and 4, and the Cabernet Franc on September 17. However, production is tiny ... less than 1,700 cases. Full-bodied, powerful, and exceptionally pure without losing its nobility and elegance, this stunning Petrus can be drunk in 2-3 years or cellared for three decades.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index’s “10-Year On” tasting in London. The bouquet on the Petrus 2003 seems slight disjointed at first – in fact, I spent a few minutes ascertaining with there might be a touch of TCA? Eventually it pulls itself together and offers attractive aromas of wild strawberry, cloves, cedar and bay leaf. The definition is impressive for the vintage and that is translated on the palate, which is fresh and lively, underpinned by fine, slightly edgy tannins. Petrus clearly is on a different track in this vintage with a sense of symmetry and poise that is atypical. This illustrates how those smectite clays of Petrus can nurture a singular wine. Tasted March 2013.
