International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 114

($575-$650) Medium red-ruby. Very ripe but subdued nose hints at mulberry, caramel, toffee, iron and nutty oak. Very ripe, broad and deep but quite closed today; lush and full but classically dry and light on its feet. Red berry and mineral flavors coat the palate. Builds impressively on the very long, gripping finish. I would not be surprised if this very suave Petrus merited a higher score a decade down the road.

Mid crimson. Solid, sweet, thick and youthful with lots still to give but nowhere near revealing its potential yet... Spicy and admirable but still a bit dry on the palate. Very long and impressive though. The aftertaste just vibrates!

The 2001 Petrus (2,160 cases produced) exhibits more depth and richness than any other Pomerol I tasted. Its deep saturated ruby/plum/purple color is accompanied by a tight but promising bouquet of vanilla, cherry liqueur, melted licorice, black currants, and notions of truffles and earth. Rich, full-bodied, and surprisingly thick as well as intense, there is plenty of structure underlying the wealth of fruit and extract. Give it 3-6 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following two decades as it promises to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage, not to mention one of the most concentrated. I told Christian Moueix (although I'm not sure he agreed with me) that his best wines of 2001 reminded me of the 1971s in style, but with slightly less tannin and more fat.

This is very youthful, almost like a barrel sample. Some might say it is still in a dumb stage, yet there's plenty of body and richness, with blackberry and toasted oak character, verging on coffee. Very long. A beauty.--Petrus non-blind vertical. 2,000 cases made.
