1992 Petrus Bordeaux The 1992 Petrus is clearly one of the two candidates for the wine of the vintage. The normal production of 4500 cases was severely reduced to only 2600 cases resulting in an atypically concentrated powerful rich wine with a dark saturated ruby/purple color a tight but promising nose of sweet black-cherry fruit vanillin caramel and herb-tinged mocha notes. Concentrated and powerful with superb density of fruit and richness as well as wonderful sweetness to its tannin this is a brilliant effort for the vintage. The wine requires 3-5 years of cellaring and should keep for 15-20+. Interestingly the Petrus vineyard along with that of its sibling Trotanoy was covered with black plastic in early September 1992 to trap most of the rain rather than allowing it to saturate the vineyard's soil and dilute the grapes. It was a strategy that obviously paid off. RP
