The 2000 is still the benchmark vintage for Bordeaux for the 21st Century. The first aroma that assaulted my senses was coffee. The next thing I noticed was its power. The third thing I noticed was how deft and balanced its fruit still was despite all that power. Its fruit was definitely big blue, so much so that I wrote ‘GO GIANTS!’ Yes, it was my 22nd wine, and we all know what happens at this stage of the tasting J. Its nose was ‘perfect,’ and its rich and decadent palate was clearly in the superior category. The Hedonist saw a little ‘baby 1990 ’ in it. I believe I gave this wine 99 points previously, and I would not be surprised to see other bottles down the road returning to that glory

(6-2010) A prodigious Petrus, this wine has that extra level of intensity and complexity that is monumental. The magic is clearly Petrus, and the 2000 will always be an interesting vintage to compare to another legend in the making, the 1998, or more recently, of course, the 2005, 2008, and 2009. Extremely full-bodied, with great fruit purity, an unmistakable note of underbrush, black truffle, intense black cherries, licorice, and mulberry, the wine seems to show no evidence of oak whatsoever. It has a sumptuous, unctuous texture, plenty of tannin, but also vibrancy and brightness. This is a remarkable wine that seems slightly more structured and massive than the 1998, which comes across as slightly more seamless, as if it were haute couture. This wine needs at least another 5-10 years of cellaring and should age for 50+ years.

(10-2004) Dark color, with loads of smoky grilled meat and ripe fruit aromas. Lots of violets. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a superlong finish. Solid and tight. Like a tightly wound piece of silk string. Just as I remember it.

(6-2001) Very deep, fairly intense; sweet, rich, somehow totally unique; very sweet on the palate, with lovely fruit and flesh.

The Petrus estate derives its name from a village called "Petrus". Its history is recent and yet this wine is already a legend. Throughout the nineteenth century the area belonged to the Arnaud family. In 1925, a woman from the Libourne region, Ms. Loubat, takes shares in the property. Twenty years later she is the sole owner. Understanding that the wines of the Medoc sell for more than wines of Pomerol, in particular her wines, she did everything she could to take advantage of such a promising terroir.  In a few decades the myth was born. In 1961, Mrs Lacoste and Mr. Lignac, niece and nephew of Mrs. Loubat  inherit the estate.The vineyard is based on the highest hill of the designation, culminating at an altitude of 40 meters. The soil consists mainly of clay which  is well suited to Merlot which constitutes 95% of the plantings. The 12 hectares are the subject of constant work and a constant obsession with détail.  It is thought that Pétrus is more accessible to tasting than  some of its illustrious colleagues..
