Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Vinous – 90/100

The 2013 Petrus has a somewhat dour nose, and compared to the Lafleur, it lacks fruit intensity and freshness. There is an underlying herbaceous element here. The palate is medium-bodied with somewhat dry tannins, moderate weight and fine acidity. Given the peppery finish, you might presume there was some Cabernet Franc in the blend. But it is a bit facile within this estate’s pantheon of great wines. Tasted at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On tasting. [Neal Martin, 08/08/2023]

Robert Parker – 91

The 2013 Petrus was bottled in June 2015, a month before I visited the property to taste with winemaker, Olivier Berrouet. “The idea was to not push too much,” he told me. “We didn’t use too much wood – around 45% new oak. It would be 55% in a good vintage. The pH is 3.55 and it has 13.5% alcohol.” It has quite a deep colour for a 2013, very clear and lucid. The nose is undeniably very attractive, gently unfolding with black cherries, iodine, pot pourri and a touch of bilberry. The aromatics are gentle and unassuming, yet still very Pomerol and still very Petrus. The palate is medium-bodied and for a 2013 it is certainly well structured, the tannins imparting a grainy mouthfeel. At the moment it feels saline in the mouth, fresh and with absolutely no sign of greenness. It is a successful wine within the context of the 2013 vintage and I appreciated the sharpness on what you might call its “clinical” finish. There is not so much in the way of persistence here and it departs out the exit door swiftly rather than abruptly. No, it is not the best Petrus ever made, not by a long chalk, nevertheless it is undoubtedly better than off-vintages in the past such as the 1986 and 1996. Tasted July 2016.

JancisRobinson.com – 15

Tasted blind. Deep garnet. Savoury and dark on the nose but a bit cardboardy. Chewy and dry and short on fruit in the middle. Tough. Second bottle seems a little less tough. Absolutely crazy price/quality ratio. (JH)  [27/01/2017]
