Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Petrus 2001


Lobenberg: Sattes Rubinrot, kräftige Tannine im Gaumen, dicht und recht fest, aber auch hier fehlt Fleisch und Frucht in der Mitte, etwas antrocknende Tannine. Für Petrus sicherlich eher eine Enttäuschung.


Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau Petrus

-- Jeb Dunnuck: There’s not many 2001s I know of that will compete with the 2001 Chateau Petrus. Still youthfully ruby in color, it offers an incredibly complex perfume of blackcurrants, forest floor, white truffles and Asian spices. These give way to a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, opulent, hedonistic, yet also elegant 2001 that has loads of sweet tannin, beautiful mid-palate depth, and a great, great finish. Drink it anytime over the coming 2-3 decades. 97/100


Neal Martin über: Chateau Petrus

-- Neal Martin: The 2001 Petrus has always been winemaker Jean-Claude Berrouet’s favourite vintages. It has developed a truly exquisite bouquet that is both svelte and sensual without any sense of being overbearing. It is almost unaware of its beauty. It gradually opens with tinctures of dried blood merging with ebullient and disarmingly pure red fruit with brilliant delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly grainy tannin, quite forceful red fruit gripping the senses and then letting go, allowing a subtle savory/cooked meat note to flourish towards the finish. Maybe this bottle was a touch more foursquare than previous ones that I have encountered although that will melt away with time. Tasted at the Petrus dinner at the Épure restaurant in Hong Kong. 97/100


Wine Cellar Insider über: Chateau Petrus

-- Wine Cellar Insider: As I often say, it's the texture you notice most. And there is no exception here. Luscious, opulent and akin to exotic silks and velvet, the fruits are ripe, sweet and fresh. The truffles, dark cocoa, thyme and myriad of plums with black cherry accents remains on your palate, while the wine expands. Still young, but in a good place, if you are lucky enough, or rich enough to have a few bottles stashed away, you can drink them, or wait for further nuances to make their way into the wine. 97/100


Parker über: Chateau Petrus

-- Parker: The 2001 Petrus (2,160 cases produced) exhibits more depth and richness than any other Pomerol I tasted. Its deep saturated ruby/plum/purple color is accompanied by a tight but promising bouquet of vanilla, cherry liqueur, melted licorice, black currants, and notions of truffles and earth. Rich, full-bodied, and surprisingly thick as well as intense, there is plenty of structure underlying the wealth of fruit and extract. Give it 3-6 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following two decades as it promises to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage, not to mention one of the most concentrated. 95/100


Wine Spectator über: Chateau Petrus

-- Wine Spectator: This is very youthful, almost like a barrel sample. Some might say it is still in a dumb stage, yet there's plenty of body and richness, with blackberry and toasted oak character, verging on coffee. Very long. A beauty. 95/100

Mein Winzer


Ist Petrus nun der berühmteste Rotwein der Welt? Aller Wahrscheinlichkeit nach ja. In jedem Fall ist er aber einer der mit der größten Sorgfalt produzierten Weine der Welt. Bis vor kurzem wurde neben dem Merlot auch ein Teil Cabernet Sauvignon angebaut. Jean-François Moueix, der Eigentümer von...
