Lot #85. Petrus 2006

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Bordeaux, Pomerol.
Score: 96+ NM.
"Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. The Petrus ’06 is introverted on the nose, masculine with tobacco tinged black fruits, forest floor, baked black cherry and asphalt. The palate is very pure and harmonious, with succulent rounded tannins, black cherries, damson, a touch of tar and Moroccan spice. There is a sense of linearity and symmetry that is utterly beguiling, yet this in fieri Petrus has barely hatched from its shell. I suspect that this Petrus will be overlooked in favour of the ’05, ’08 or ’09, but you need this to complete the set and it will be the dark horse. Tasted January 2010." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Jul 2010
Provenance: The Juchoir Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $4,250
