Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Petrus 2003


Lobenberg: Das ist sicher ein archetypisch gutes Jahr für Petrus. Reich, voll, fast fett, dennoch elegant und seidig. Einer der Superstars dieses Hitzejahres. 99-100/100


Parker über: Chateau Petrus

-- Parker: A tiny production and probably the earliest harvest ever at Petrus (September 3, 4, and 17, the latter date for the Cabernet Franc), this is one of the great wines and an extraordinary achievement for a Pomerol in this vintage. It was the famous blue clay terroir of Petrus that saved this vineyard from the drought conditions that undid most of the nearby Pomerols, which possess more gravel and sand in their soils. There are only 1,650 cases of the 2003 Petrus as opposed to 1,780 cases of the 2002 (production in abundant years is 4,000 cases). This extraordinarily dense, powerful, full-bodied wine has a dark plum/purple color to the rim and an exceptional bouquet of black raspberries, sweet cherries, vanilla, licorice, and a hint of fig. The wine is powerful and full-bodied with magnificent concentration, huge structure, yet amazing freshness and overall elegance given the size, muscle, and power of this wine. Qualitatively towering above every other Pomerol as well as most of the neighboring St.-Emilions, it is a wine of great density, nobility, and potential longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2040. 96-98/100

Wine Spectator über: Chateau Petrus

-- Wine Spectator: Extraordinary nose of berry, chocolate and flowers. Amazing, jaw-dropping quality. Full-bodied, with supersilky, seductive tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Out of this world. 98/100

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...
