International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

Deep red. Knockout nose combines raspberry, mulberry, coffee, minerals and sexy coconutty oak. Strong yet silky on the attack, then strikingly deep in the middle, with superb inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of boysenberry, minerals and flowers. This boasts palate-staining fruit and grip of steel. A powerfully structured, profound wine with extraordinary energy, from fruit picked very early. This great but backward wine should evolve in bottle for three or four decades.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 176

Inky/ruby/purple-colored with a classic, but tightly wound bouquet of vanillin, cedar, roasted herbs, mulberry jam, black cherries, licorice, and graphite, the full-bodied, powerful, tannic 2005 Petrus is a super-concentrated, backward wine meant for five decades of aging. As excruciatingly tannic as some of the northern Medocs, it requires at least 15 years of bottle age.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

A sleeping giant. Dark ruby in color, showing aromas of blackberry, cèpe and green olive, with a hint of mineral. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a supercaressing mouthfeel. Turns to coffee, dark chocolate and berry. Chewy yet balanced. Very, very long in the mouth. The finish is absolutely breathtaking.
