  • 100 Wine Advocate Notes

    Opaque purple-black colored, the 2016 Petrus slips effortlessly out of the glass with sanguine, seductive notes of kirsch, warm black plums, blueberry compote, red roses, Ceylon tea, violets, dark chocolate-covered cherries, licorice and cinnamon stick with wafts of iron ore, pencil lead, unsmoked cigars and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, profound and absolutely edifying on the palate, the densely packed, beautifully perfumed red and blue fruit layers possess a charge like defibrillators stimulating your heart to be faster, each delivering achingly subtle floral and spice sparks, perfectly framed by very firm, very grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing with incredible length and taking you to depths that extend to a provocative ferrous undercurrent. Stunning. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

  • 95-98 Vinous Notes

    The 2016 Petrus is a wine of extraordinary finesse. Lifted and precise on the palate, with a lovely underpinning of ripe tannin, it exudes class. The delineation and overall translucency of the 2016 are truly remarkable. Harvest started on September 28 and wrapped up on October 11, which is a long window of time for such a small property. Technical director Olivier Berrouet describes 2016 as year with a very dry but not excessively hot summer and September rain that arrived at a very opportune moment. Berrouet gave the wines 15-18 days on the skins, followed by malolactic fermentation in tank. But beyond the technical details, the 2016 Petrus is both magnificent and unforgettable. I can't wait to taste it again. -Antonio Galloni, Vinous
