This wine is more tightly knit, more tannic, but every bit the blockbuster concentrated effort that its younger sibling, the 1990, is. It seems to need more coaxing from the glass, but the color is virtually identical, a dense ruby/purple with no lightening at the edge. In the mouth the wine cuts a broad swath, with spectacular intensity, richness, massive concentration, and high levels of tannin, yet the wine is fabulously well-delineated and like its sibling, the 1990, has a finish that goes on for nearly a minute. It does not seem to be quite as evolved as the 1990, and my instincts suggest there is a bit more tannin, but both are as prodigious as Petrus can be. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040. Last tasted, 8/02. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 4th Edition
I have always loved this wine. It's a giant, yet also sophisticated and reserved. Still dark-ruby colored, with beautiful aromas of fruits and spices. Full-bodied, with opulent fruit and a depth of flavor that lasts for minutes on the palate. Loads of tobacco and fruit.--Pétrus non-blind vertical. Best after 2010. James Suckling, WineSpectator.com
A much deeper colour than the ’82, it has an amazing bouquet of black cherries, wild hedgerow, mocha and fresh fig and interestingly I picked up a slight minty scent that I did back at the same IMW tasting in 2004. Compared to two previous bottles, this is the most backward example I have encountered, robust tannins, stunning balance silky smooth texture but taking thirty minutes in glass to coyly reveal hidden nuances: cepes, black truffles and a touch of cracked black pepper. The finish is long and languid: a brilliant Pomerol with a long future ahead. Drink now-2040 Tasted March 2008. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com
Very dark ruby with a broad band of brown. Funny richness on the nose. Liquorice, sweet palate start. Very, very succulent, tea roasted. Lots of tannin/minerals still buried in there. Game, note of menthol, very exotic. Rich and full. Wonderful length and sore-throat soothing potential. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com
