Ch. Pétrus (1.5 L)
WA: An opulent P¿ªtrus very much in the stylistic family of the 1990, this 100% Merlot has a dense plum/purple color and a sweet nose of mulberries, black cherries, some subtle toast and licorice as well as a floral element. A wine of great intensity, a multidimensional mouthfeel and full-bodied, stunning concentration, the 2009 P¿ªtrus is everything one would expect of it. Given the sweetness of its tannin, much like the 1990, I suspect this wine will always be í open for business,í€ appealing even in its youth. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2050+. This is one of the larger productions of P¿ªtrus over recent years, with nearly 3,000 cases of this vintage turned out by proprietor Jean Moueix.
