98(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2013

Fully saturated ruby.  Knockout aromas of fresh black cherry, blackcurrant, exotic herbs, coffee and menthol, plus a hint of minerality.  Juicy, fruit-driven flavors of dark berries and cherry are complicated by cocoa, vanilla and graphite and given laser-like precision by vibrant, harmonious acidity.  Manages to be both fleshy and acidic at the same time, demonstrating uncanny depth and complexity of flavor. This strikes me as deeper and longer than the already magnificent 2009:  it may well turn out to be the wine of the vintage.  These two wines from Petrus make for an outstanding, back-to-back pair of vintages.
