2000 Petrus Bordeaux - 100 Pts! A magical effort from Petrus the 2000 has continued to gain weight and stature. From the bottle it is a perfect wine much like the 1998. The color is inky plum/purple to the rim and the nose which starts slowly begins to roar after several minutes offering up scents of smoke blackberries cherries licorice and an unmistakable truffle/underbrush element. On the palate this enormous effort is eminiscent of dry vintage port with fabulous ripeness a huge unctuous texture enormous body and a colossal 65-second finish. I did not have the benefit of tasting it side by side with the equally perfect 1998 but it appears the 2000 is a more massive macho/masculine wine with more obvious tannin and structure than the seamless 1998. It is another wine to add to the legacy of the great vintages of Petrus. RP
