Petrus 2014 CBO(6x75cl) 95/100 JMQ
Un joli Petrus 2014 de couleur sombre, intense et belle. Nez intense, pur, fin, fruité avec une jolie note de mûre. Bouche juteuse, soyeuse et particulièrement fruitée, avec des notes de fruits rouges et noirs. Beau milieu. Finale puissante et longue, au grain enrobé et fin. JMQ.www.quarin.com
The 2014 Petrus was tasted on the same morning as the 2014 Vieux-Château-Certan and though they are built from different blends, their personalities are quite similar. This is a succinct, not powerful, much more refined and discrete bouquet, gradually unfurling and revealing a subtle sea spray/marine element. The palate is again quite discrete at first and unfolds at a glacial pace. It is beautifully balanced with fine tannin, quite linear and structured, gently building towards a finish that has wonderful salinity (continuing that marine theme). Note: I actually returned to taste this several hours later, because it was so closed earlier on and it did finally open, which is atypical for this Pomerol. It is a wonderful Petrus, but one that will deserve bottle age and decanting.Neal Martin
