Chateau Petrus 2005

Chateau Petrus 2005
Region:
Pomerol, Bordeaux
Variety:
Bordeaux Blend
2005 maybe one of the longest living Chateau Petrus made this century. This wine exudes, ripeness, spice and an amazing complex nose. It is extremely dense and is still quite closed and needs time to open to show its full potential. The tannins are refined and this wine is wonderfully poised and unadulterated, it will be a wine to remember.

Vintage 2005 - Offering pure black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, the inky ruby/purple 2005 Petrus is still very young and unyielding, but super-concentrated, powerful, full-bodied and primordial. It is much more backward than the likes of Lafleur, Trotanoy or Hosanna. Nevertheless, it is super-rich, extracted, beautifully balanced and pure. Forget it for another 10-15 years, and drink it over the following half-century. This may well be among the longest-lived wines of 2005.

Vintage 2005 - The Petrus 2005 might not be the cheapest wine that has ever been made, but if somebody else is paying it will blow you away. Unsurprisingly, it is bestowed with a more nuanced bouquet than the Le Pin ’05. It is beautifully defined, crystalline, with vibrant red berry fruit, minerals, iris and smoke. This is utterly profound. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, perfect acidity, slightly savoury fruit with an iron-rich finish. There is amazing persistence here, a Petrus that has finally decided to join the ranks of the great vintages from this Pomerol estate such as the 1970, 1989 and 1998. Sensational, seductive and serious.
