Outer quote mark This shows fabulous length with a chocolate, berry and mineral undertone. Licorice and currants too. Full body yet refined with seamless tannins. Goes on for minutes. It shows such amazing length and elegance. Depth. Phenomenal structure here, especially for the vintage. Reminds me of the 1998 or 1971, which were structured yet very fine. Inner quote mark (2/2015)

Description

The clay in the Petrus vineyard is what makes the wine so special and unique. In fact, this type of clay does not exist in any other wine-producing region in the world! Something else to consider that is only found at Petrus, for land devoted to the production of wine, Petrus is the only hill made entirely from clay. One of the most saught after wines in the world!
