Plenty of plum and olive character. Medium to full-bodied, with pleasant, fine tannins and ripe fruit, and a medium, delicate finish. Petrus is very fine this year, not its usual powerful self. Best after 2004. 2080 cases made.
This wine is turning out much in the style of such wonderful Petrus vintages as 1967 and 1971. Although not as outstanding as either the 1998 or 2000, it displays beautiful intensity and finesse in a more evolved style than one normally expects from this estate. The wine has a dense, nearly opaque ruby/purple color, sweet black cherry, mulberry, truffle-infused fruit, full body, low acidity, admirable purity, and sweet tannin. It should be ready to drink in 5-6 years, and will last for two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030. Only 2,400 cases were produced.
