Lot #979. Petrus 2010

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Packaging: OWC.
Region: France, Bordeaux, Pomerol.
Score: 100 RP.
"The 2010 reminds me somewhat of the pre-1975 vintages of Petrus, a monster-in-the-making, with loads of mulberry, coffee, licorice and black cherry notes with an overlay of enormous amounts of glycerin and depth. Stunningly rich, full-bodied and more tannic and classic than the 2009, this is an awesome Petrus, but probably needs to be forgotten for 8-10 years. It should last at least another 50 or more . . . . Proprietor Jean Moueix . . . has taken over for his father, Jean-Fran├žois, who has largely retired, and the younger Moueix has really pushed quality even higher at this renowned estate." Wine Advocate #205, Feb 2013
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $22,500
