Bordeaux Book(1998) Author: Robert Parker

This is a sensational Petrus that has drunk well since the mid-1970s. Plum/garnet in color with noticeable orange at the rim, the chocolate, mocha, sweet, fruit-scented bouquet is followed by a rich, velvety, full-bodied wine with layers of silky fruit. The 1971 must surely be the wine of the vintage. Light to moderate tannins and high alcohol will continue to preserve this plump, unctuous wine for another decade. This is Petrus at its most seductive. Last tasted, 3/94.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

This wine is as comfortable as your favorite pair of slippers. Extremely caressing, with wonderfully enticing aromas and flavors of tobacco and violets and a rich, round palate.--Petrus vertical. Drink now.
