Tasting Notes Petrus 2006

96+

Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. The Petrus ’06 is introverted on the nose, masculine with tobacco tinged black fruits, forest floor, baked black cherry and asphalt. The palate is very pure and harmonious, with succulent rounded tannins, black cherries, damson, a touch of tar and Moroccan spice. There is a sense of linearity and symmetry that is utterly beguiling, yet this in fieri Petrus has barely hatched from its shell. I suspect that this Petrus will be overlooked in favour of the ’05, ’08 or ’09, but you need this to complete the set and it will be the dark horse. Tasted January 2010.

Currently closed and backward, this wine seems to share a more similar character to Trotanoy than in any recent vintages I recall. Powerful, structured, masculine, but a long-term proposition, this dark ruby/purple-colored wine displays notes of caramelized, sweet black cherries and wild berry fruit with plenty of spice, earth, and a hint of herbaceousness. The wine has very high tannins, impressive concentration, but that mouth-searing level of tannin. This is one Petrus that should probably be forgotten for at least 8-10 years and drunk over the following two to three decades. I always find it ironic that Petrus, which is virtually 100% Merlot, is more backward than the first growths of Medoc, which are Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated.
