Tasting Notes Petrus 2015

99

A stunning wine from the ever-youthful Olivier Berrouet and his team, which may well get 100 points from me on release in bottle. Who needs Cabernet Franc for added freshness in 2015 when you have a terroir and winemaking as good as this? Pure, subtle and refined, this has more tannin and backbone than you think. It’s just that the fruit is so seductive you don’t notice it. A wine that justifies some of the hype about the vintage. Drink: 2025-40

The 2015 Petrus is, of course, 100% Merlot picked between September 15-29 , although the secateurs were only used on six of those days with a majority coming toward the end of that period. Olivier Berrouet told me that it will be matured in 50% new oak. It has an extremely precise, controlled bouquet with crystalline red and black fruit. This is not a powerful or intense bouquet, but beguilingly pretty. It is crystalline and I detected more mineralité than in recent vintages, perhaps because there is less puppy fat. The palate is beautifully balanced, completely harmonious, underpinned by filigree tannin that assert a sense of focus and linearity until two-thirds of the way along, whereupon it fans out while maintaining breathtaking clarity. Touches of cracked black pepper and spice lend this Petrus personality and intrigue. Having tasted most legendary Petrus since the 1940s, and tasted here from barrel since 2002, I can only apologize for being so predictable by claiming that this may well nestle among the likes of the Petrus 1950, 1964, 1989 and 1998.

Picked 15-29 September. Long period for such a small property! pH 3.7. Not the deepest crimson of the lot. Exotic, super-charming nose. And lovely freshness on the palate. Almost Cabernet Franc-like (very ripe Cabernet Franc)! Hint of decongestant medicine! Something sweet and peppery. Not too big, but super-opulent. Great charm and intensity on the palate. Quite difficult to see the tannins; they emerge only at the end. You shouldn't need to wait too long for this. Wonderful persistence. The most beautiful ink you will ever encounter. Lots of energy.

A wine that makes me dream and touches my soul. Such amazing purity and density yet the tannins and acidity are in perfect balance. The freshness and quality tannins is second to none. It’s a redefinition of some of the great Petrus such as 1971 and 1961 that didn’t have the precision or clarity of today.
