Petrus 2015 (100JS) (750ML)
98-100 WA
100 Points, James Suckling: "A wine that makes me dream and touches my soul. Such amazing purity and density yet the tannins and acidity are in perfect balance. The freshness and quality tannins is second to none. It’s a redefinition of some of the great Petrus such as 1971 and 1961 that didn’t have the precision or clarity of today." 04/16 98-100 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Petrus is, of course, 100% Merlot picked between September 15-29 , although the secateurs were only used on six of those days with a majority coming toward the end of that period. Olivier Berrouet told me that it will be matured in 50% new oak. It has an extremely precise, controlled bouquet with crystalline red and black fruit. This is not a powerful or intense bouquet, but beguilingly pretty. It is crystalline and I detected more mineralité than in recent vintages, perhaps because there is less puppy fat. The palate is beautifully balanced, completely harmonious, underpinned by filigree tannin that assert a sense of focus and linearity until two-thirds of the way along, whereupon it fans out while maintaining breathtaking clarity. Touches of cracked black pepper and spice lend this Petrus personality and intrigue. Having tasted most legendary Petrus since the 1940s, and tasted here from barrel since 2002, I can only apologize for being so predictable by claiming that this may well nestle among the likes of the Petrus 1950, 1964, 1989 and 1998." 04/16 95-97 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2015 Pétrus is dark, brooding and also fiercely tannic, which sets it apart from most Pomerols of the year stylistically. Vertical in feel, the 2015 possesses terrific energy and cut to balance the dark, super-ripe fruit. Winemaker Oliver Berrouet adds that the berries were considerable smaller (about 30%) than normal, which resulted in high skin-to-juice ratios consequently musts with high levels of tannin. The 2015 is a vertical, brooding Pétrus that shows little of the early appeal of so many other wines. Readers will have to be especially patient." 04/16
