2009 Petrus

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2009
Appellation: Pomerol
100 (RP)
Petrus is the undoubted, undisputed heavyweight hero of Bordeaux, occupying the very highest echelon of the global wine market alongside DRC and Henri Jayer. Combining Burgundian production levels with the ultimate in Pomerol style, Petrus is a rare beast, appealing to new and old alike; it is both first in line for every wealthy new collector’s cellar whilst also occupying a prized place in the collections of the great connoisseurs of the wine world. The estate consists of 11.5 hectares lying at the heart of the Pomerol appellation, producing approximately 30,000 bottles per year. Petrus wine is produced on the famed ‘plateau’ in the eastern part of Pomerol where the vineyard enjoys excellent drainage and thick clay soil. Under winemaker Olivier Berrouet the quality of Petrus has maintained the highest imaginable level and with production being much lower than the first growths of the left bank, and yields as low as possible, Petrus is rarer and thus invariably more expensive.

Tasting Notes and Scores

100

Wine Advocate

An opulent Petrus very much in the stylistic family of the 1990, this 100% Merlot has a dense plum/purple color and a sweet nose of mulberries, black cherries, some subtle toast and licorice as well as a floral element. A wine of great intensity, a multidimensional mouthfeel and full-bodied, stunning concentration, the 2009 Petrus is everything one would expect of it. Given the sweetness of its tannin, much like the 1990, I suspect this wine will always be “open for business,” appealing even in its youth. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2050+.

Neal Martin

The 2009 Petrus is surprisingly backward on the nose compared directly with the 2009 Le Pin, demanding a lot of coaxing. Initially broody, it then begins to flourish with wild strawberry, cranberry, crushed stone and black truffle, all beautifully defined but very succinct. The palate is medium-bodied with silky tannins lending an almost cashmere texture. Hints of leather and mocha infused the mainly red fruit, but where this Petrus really shines is within the unearthly precision on the finish and the enormously long aftertaste. Brilliant. Tasted at BI Wines' & Spirits Ten Year On tasting. - vinous.com, March 2019

Stephen Tanzer

Dark ruby. Ripe red cherry, cocoa, exotic herbs, soy sauce, sweet spices and a hint of licorice on the showy, opulent nose. At once fat and juicy, with firm-edged dark berry flavors contributing very good grip and backbone to softer, fleshier plum, black cherry, chocolate syrup and sexy Oriental spice flavors. Finishes juicy, minty and fresh, with very broad, lingering notes of sweet ripe dark berries and milk chocolate. This memorable wine is everything you'd expect Petrus to be, but right now the 2010 is the more precise and concentrated of the two wines.

James Suckling

Tons of truffle and chocolate make this lush and fleshy Pomerol very seductive. The power and concentration are impressive, but right at the opulent and silky finish there's just a hint of warmth from the alcohol. Drink or hold. (Horizontal Tasting, London, 2019) - Stuart Pigott, jamessuckling.com, March 2019
