Region:
Pomerol, Bordeaux
Variety:
Bordeaux Blend
2006 vintage in Bordeaux has become a forgotten vintage after following the hype of 2005. What you will find with most wines from the 2006 vintage is they might become the dark horse of your wine cellar and deliver an amazing surprise. 2006 Petrus is tight, closed full of brooding fruits. There is a great symmetry with this wine and it needs time to evolve.

Vintage 2006 - Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. The Petrus ’06 is introverted on the nose, masculine with tobacco tinged black fruits, forest floor, baked black cherry and asphalt. The palate is very pure and harmonious, with succulent rounded tannins, black cherries, damson, a touch of tar and Moroccan spice. There is a sense of linearity and symmetry that is utterly beguiling, yet this in fieri Petrus has barely hatched from its shell. I suspect that this Petrus will be overlooked in favour of the ’05, ’08 or ’09, but you need this to complete the set and it will be the dark horse. Tasted January 2010.
