Region / Area of Production : Pomerol, France

This is one of the larger productions of Petrus over recent years, with nearly 3,000 cases of this vintage turned out by proprietor Jean Moueix. An opulent Petrus very much in the stylistic family of the 1990, this 100% Merlot has a dense plum / purple colour and a sweet nose of mulberries, black cherries, some subtle toast and licorice as well as a floral element. A wine of great intensity, a multidimensional mouthfeel and full-bodied, stunning concentration, the 2009 Petrus 2009 is everything one would expect of it. Given the sweetness of its tannin, much like the 1990. I suspect this wine will always be "open for business," appealing even in it youth. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2050+

A Vintage Endowed by the Sun

The 2009 growing season in Pomerol was a viticulturist's dream. Picture perfect climatic conditions with an ideal balance of sunshine and just enough rain bestowed upon the Merlot grapes an opportunity to reach optimal ripeness.
