Offering pure black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, the inky ruby/purple 2005 Petrus is still very young and unyielding, but super-concentrated, powerful, full-bodied and primordial. It is much more backward than the likes of Lafleur, Trotanoy or Hosanna. Nevertheless, it is super-rich, extracted, beautifully balanced and pure. Forget it for another 10-15 years, and drink it over the following half-century. This may well be among the longest-lived wines of 2005.
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #219, Jun 2015)
The Petrus 2005 might not be the cheapest wine that has ever been made, but if somebody else is paying it will blow you away. Unsurprisingly, it is bestowed with a more nuanced bouquet than the Le Pin ’05. It is beautifully defined, crystalline, with vibrant red berry fruit, minerals, iris and smoke. This is utterly profound. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, perfect acidity, slightly savoury fruit with an iron-rich finish. There is amazing persistence here, a Petrus that has finally decided to join the ranks of the great vintages from this Pomerol estate such as the 1970, 1989 and 1998. Sensational, seductive and serious.

Dark, narrow rimmed ruby red; sweetly ripe, oak-caramel tinged, gently earthy to smell, more mature on the nose than the palate; rich, full, firm, concentrated, tannic; a wine of great long term structure, still marked by its firm fruit and oak tannins; dense on the palate, with a mass of fruit, both very ripe and wonderfully fresh at once; powerful without being in any way heavy, with a great tenacity of flavour, and great aromatic length. A wine of substance and sinew but subtlety too. By some way the most backward of the 2005 First Growths. A great deal of patience will be required. 2030-55+
