Chateau Petrus 2010

Chateau Petrus 2010
Region:
Pomerol, Bordeaux
Variety:
Bordeaux Blend
If you are a skeptic you would think Bordeaux are having us on declaring 2010 as another vintage of the decade, just after saying the same thing about the 2009 vintage. Weather conditions for 2009 and 2010 were almost identical with 2010 seeing as much sun as 2009 but lower temperatures. The 2010 Petrus exhibits ripeness, power and beauty. It shows a more medium bodied linear edge than the 2009. Perfection personified.

Vintage 2010 - The harvest at Petrus took place between September 27 and October 12, and the 2010 finished at 14.1% natural alcohol, which is slightly lower than the 2009's 14.5%. The 2010 reminds me somewhat of the pre-1975 vintages of Petrus, a monster-in-the-making, with loads of mulberry, coffee, licorice and black cherry notes with an overlay of enormous amounts of glycerin and depth. Stunningly rich, full-bodied and more tannic and classic than the 2009, this is an awesome Petrus, but probably needs to be forgotten for 8-10 years. It should last at least another 50 or more.

Vintage 2010 - The Petrus 2010 is a force of nature. It has a voluptuous bouquet with ripe black cherries, crème de cassis, blueberry and peach jam. It has crystalline delineation - modern yet sophisticated. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet ripe entry, rounded and velvety smooth tannins, perfectly judged acidity, harmonious with a long powerful aftertaste. It is more approachable than a year ago, bridled with a sense of completeness. Mesmeric. Tasted January 2014.
