  • Neal Martin, April 2022, Score: 92

    The 2011 Petrus has plenty of fruit on the nose, elegant and floral, redcurrant and raspberry fruit, a touch of crushed stone and pressed rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with a rich and quite extravagant style of the finish, lightly spiced with a rounded, velvety-smooth and quite dense finish. Maybe it just conveys a little more winemaking that the terroir at the moment? Tasted blind at the annual 10-Year-On tasting. 2022-2040

    Deep garnet in colour, the Petrus 2012 out of barrel has a more broody, but no less compelling bouquet compared to the 2011 last year that was more open. Here we find pure blackberry and raspberry fruit, a background of citrus fruit lending the aromatics freshness and a touch of cold stone. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp, structured, quite compact entry that bides its time in the glass. For sure this is a very tightly wound Petrus at this primordial stage, however there is good weight in the mouth and it arcs towards a saline finish that exudes breathtaking delineation and clarity. The 2012 feels like a more masculine Petrus stylistically similar to the 2008, but it will have more to offer after ten years in bottle.

    There is a boatload of tannin in this intense purple-colored effort as well as a beautiful bouquet of mulberry jam, kirsch, licorice, truffles and toast. Seductive, full-bodied and opulent with abundant red and black fruit, it is a full-bodied, long, impressive Pomerol that should keep for 30+ years. Merlot was one of the favored varietals in 2012, and Pomerol was undeniably the top appellation. One of only a handful of candidates for “wine of the vintage,” the 2012 Petrus was fashioned from small yields due to a significant loss of the crop due to the poor flowering and resulting coulure as well as the lack of rain between mid-July and September 25. The harvest lasted for nearly two weeks (from September 24 to October 8). The natural alcohol in the 2012 ranks alongside that in the 2010 and 2009, 14.5%. The finished pH was 3.8. Drink 2043 -

    Lower volume than 2011 – 30 hl/ha, about 30,000 bottles. Harvest 24 September to 8 October. One of longest harvests at Petrus. They had to eliminate more fruit than last year. First vintage in the new cellar, allowing them to work with more and smaller parcels – they now have 12 (unlined) concrete vats instead of the previous eight. From 2013, global distribution will be handled exclusively by Jean-François Moueix (under the name of a new company called Petrus Something) – up to now has handled distribution only in France. Inky core. Highly aromatic and beautifully spiced fruit. Both pure and complex on the nose. Aromatic on the palate with fine-grained but deep, welcoming tannins. Hint of smokiness, just so perfumed already. Lovely cassis, velvety and open but with the structure and harmony to age gracefully. Finishes dry and velvety too. Lacks the edge of youth. Almost too gentle at this stage in its life. (JH) Drink 2018-2030

  • Wine Spectator, April 2013, Score: 94-97

    Very lively and invigorating, delivering flavors of raspberry ganache, briar, bay and red licorice. Shows ample energy, with mouthwatering acidity coursing along. Displays power but not aggression. Despite the briary tannins, this delivers excellent range and length. Tasted non-blind. —J.M.
