Wine Critics Notes:

Vinous - Score: 98 (2019 March)

The 2009 Petrus has a delineated and focused bouquet with subtle fireside hearth/ash-like scents infusing the sensual red fruit, hints of Earl Grey emerging with time in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, demonstrating a little more backbone than the 2009 Le Pin. Just a tad more grip, possibly due to some Cabernet Franc lends another dimension towards the persistent finish. You could possibly broach this now with decanting but it needs another year or two. Profound.
