The 2020 Petrus has retained its opaque purple-black color after bottling, heralding the seemingly frozen glacial pace at which this wine continues. It opens very reluctantly, requires a lot of air with powerful rolling and after some hours this giant of a wine wakes up. As it finally unfolds, it slowly turns into a powerful, fantastically clean nose of preserved plums, blackberry preserves and blueberry compote, followed by nuances of molten licorice, dark chocolate, black truffles, iron ore and, later still, floral notes of lilac and rose oil. On the palate the wine is tight, muscular with many, many layers of perfectly ripe black and blue fruit, exotic spices and earthy notes for which words simply fail. It will take a good 8-10 years to get going, then it is very likely to outlive us all, but you should be sure to drink these before you go.

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