Pomerol, cru exceptionnel
Offered in a six-bottle original wooden case
Tasting note: While the 2010 vintage was first shown the construction of the new cellar was underway. All to be ready for the 2012 harvest. Petrus is one of the unique chateau’s to believe in temperature controlled concrete fermentation tanks. These are to be newly installed in the cellar.
Olivier Berrouet compares the 2010 with 2005, all though the 2005 is a bit more tightly structured. Both in classic style on a very high level.
Intense rich already very open nose, refined complex aromas of ripe cherries and spice cake.
Lots of packed in extract on the full multilayered taste. Massive structure with great balance.
A legendary Petrus. Great. April 2011. EV
