Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
98

The 1998 Petrus is unquestionably a fabulous effort boasting a dense plum/purple color as well as an extraordinary nose of black fruits intermixed with caramel, mocha, and vanilla. Exceptionally pure, super-concentrated, and extremely full-bodied, with admirable underlying acidity as well as sweet tannin, it reveals a superb mid-palate in addition to the luxurious richness for which this great property is known. The finish lasts for 40-45 seconds. Patience will definitely be required. Production was 2,400 cases, about 1,600 cases less than normal. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2040.

The 1998 Petrus is the best Right Bank of the decade and here, against the 2000 and 2001, there is no contest. This is the business. It has a ripe, opulent and ineffably complex bouquet with brilliant definition and a sense of mineralité that is more common in a Burgundy Grand Cru. The palate is full-bodied with perfect balance and yet it knows that it does not need to grip the mouth, rather lavishes it in pure tensile red fruit. There is tension and electricity that effortlessly counters the density and opulence of this Pomerol, delivering a luxuriant hint of menthol on the finish. Astonishing. Tasted at the Petrus dinner at the Épure restaurant in Hong Kong. www.vinous.com
