A prodigious Petrus from the magical year 2005. The magic is clearly Petrus and the 2005 will always be an interesting vintage to compare with other legends such as the 2000, 2008 and 2009. Extremely full, with lots of fruit purity, an unmistakable note of undergrowth , black truffle, intense black cherries, licorice and mulberry, the wine seems to show no evidence of oak at all. It has a luscious, unctuous texture, lots of tannins, but also vibrancy and brightness. The inky / purple 2005 Petrus offers pure black cherries and blackcurrants and is still very young and unyielding, but super concentrated, powerful, full and primordial. This is arguably one of the longest-lived Petrus.

This Petrus also comes directly from the Chateau. We always buy all our wines from the importers or chateaus so that authenticity can be checked and that we know for sure that these wines are always stored in good conditions .
