2008 Chateau Petrus Reviews

97 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

" It is hard to call Petrus a “sleeper of the vintage,” but the 2008 will merit more attention than most consumers would think. Low yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare resulted in only 25,000 bottles of this beauty. A wine of great intensity (possibly the most concentrated wine of the vintage), this 100% Merlot boasts a dark purple color as well as a sweet perfume of mocha, caramel, black cherries, black currants, earth, and forest floor. Deep, unctuously textured, full-bodied, and pure, it will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring and should drink well for 25-30+ years."

97 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

"Gorgeous, smooth wine, perhaps even more intense than in past vintages. The tannins are totally enveloped by the ripe plum and damson fruits. Complex, powerful, layered, and opulent, this is a wine for the long term."

93 Pointz Wine Spectator

"This has texture and range that's a step up from the pack, with a gorgeous, silky feel to the ripe but restrained cherry, raspberry, and damson plum notes that are layered with hints of black tea, incense, and mineral. The long finish is more about poise than power. Lovely. Drink now through 2020."
