The 2001 Petrus (2,160 cases produced) exhibits more depth and richness than any other Pomerol I tasted. Its deep saturated ruby/plum/purple color is accompanied by a tight but promising bouquet of vanilla, cherry liqueur, melted licorice, black currants, and notions of truffles and earth. Rich, full-bodied, and surprisingly thick as well as intense, there is plenty of structure underlying the wealth of fruit and extract. Give it 3-6 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following two decades as it promises to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage, not to mention one of the most concentrated.

We finished the Bordeaux flight with the 2001 Petrus, which was much softer and more evolved than the 2000 Petrus. The 2001 revealed lots of caramel, coffee, black plums and black cherries in a full-bodied, opulent, surprisingly approachable style.
Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. There is stunning sense of definition and mineralite on the nose: blackberry, wild hedgerow, crushed stone and just a faint hint of marmalade. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, superb backbone here, a wine built for the long-term. Dark broody, leather tinged fruit, a touch of orange zest and small red cherries which can to more prominence.
