Dense Royal blue Textured

Château Petrus 2010

RRP £3,300

King of Pomerol, Petrus’s 2010 vintage is characteristically royal blue on the nose. But it is backward, in hibernation. Again in the mouth, this is not the most expressive Petrus I’ve known. It is long-limbed and thoroughbred; exceedingly dense and tightly-coiled. The wine has an edible, caressing texture. One to come back to in a decade.
