CHÂTEAU PÉTRUS 1995 (12, OWC) WS 93 WA 96

CHÂTEAU PÉTRUS 1995 (OWC)
POMEROL.

THE WINE EXHIBITS AN OPAQUE RUBY/PURPLE COLOR, FOLLOWED BY A KNOCK-OUT NOSE OF PAIN GRILLE, JAMMY BLACK FRUITS, AND ROASTED COFFEE. ON THE PALATE, IT POSSESSES TEETH-STAINING EXTRACT LEVELS, MASSIVE BODY, AND RICH, SWEET BLACK FRUITS BUTTRESSED BY POWERFUL, NOTICEABLE TANNIN. A FORMIDABLY ENDOWED WINE WITH LAYERS OF EXTRACT, THIS IS A HUGE, TANNIC, MONSTROUS-SIZED PETRUS THAT WILL REQUIRE A MINIMUM OF 10 YEARS OF CELLARING. FORGET ALL THE NONSENSE ABOUT MERLOT PRODUCING SWEET, SOFT, READY TO DRINK WINES, BECAUSE LOW YIELDING, OLD MERLOT VINES MADE IN THE WAY OF PETRUS AND OTHER TOP POMEROLS FREQUENTLY POSSESS AS MUCH AGING POTENTIAL AS ANY GREAT CABERNET SAUVIGNON-BASED WINE IN THE WORLD. LOOK FOR THE 1995 PETRUS TO LAST FOR 50+ YEARS. ANTICIPATED MATURITY: 2007-2050. WS 93 WA 96

POMEROL.
U. BN.

A DENSE RUBY/PURPLE-TINGED COLOR AND RESTRAINED BUT INTRIGUING AROMAS OF KIRSCH, RASPBERRY JAM, WOOD SPICE, AND MULBERRIES ARE FOUND IN THIS FULL-BODIED PETRUS. AN UNDENIABLE SUCCESS IN 2011, IT IS RICH, LAYERED AND PURE WITH LIGHT TO MODERATE TANNIN, BUT SEEMS SLIGHTLY LESS MUSCULAR AND TANNIC COMPARED TO ITS STABLEMATE, TROTANOY. FORGET IT FOR A FEW YEARS AND DRINK IT OVER THE FOLLOWING 25 YEARS. MADE FROM 100% MERLOT, IT TIPS THE SCALES AT 13.5% ALCOHOL. IN SHORT, IT IS TYPICALLY OPEN-KNIT AND ALREADY SHOWING VERY WELL. THIS IS QUITE OPULENT. DRINK 2017-2042 APRIL 2014 WA 95 JS 95

U. BN.

TASTED BLIND AT THE SOUTHWOLD 2012 TASTING, THE 2012 PETRUS DEMONSTRATED A FORWARD, FRUIT-DRIVEN, RIPE RASPBERRY AND WILD STRAWBERRY BOUQUET UNDERNEATH WHICH LIES GRAPHITE AND FOREST FLOOR AROMAS. IT SEEMS REFINED, UNDERSTATED, NONCHALANT EVEN. THE PALATE IS MEDIUM-BODIED WITH A SLIGHTLY SAVORY OPENING, AS IF THERE WAS A TINY DROP OF CABERNET FRANC. THE TANNINS ARE FINE BUT FIRM, THE RED FRUIT INFUSED WITH COOKED MEAT, BLACK PEPPER AND SAGE NOTES, ALTHOUGH I WAS ANTICIPATING A FINISH ARMED WITH MORE BODY. THAT MAY WELL DEVELOP IN TIME, YET IT REMAINS A REGAL POMEROL THAT WILL PROBABLY MERIT A HIGHER SCORE WITH BOTTLE AGE, HENCE THE PLUS-SIGN AGAINST THE SCORE. TASTED JANUARY 2016. WS 96 WA 96+

A WINE EVINCING TRUE ENLIGHTENMENT. ITS FLORAL ON THE NOSE AND ALSO SHOWS BLACKBERRIES, STONES, MINERALS AND CEDAR. FULL-BODIED, YET ITS SO FINE-GRAINED AND TIGHT. SO, SO LONG. IT BUILDS LIKE A WATERFALL ON THE FINISH. THE TANNINS ARE POWERFUL YET SUPERBLY INTEGRATED AND HARMONIOUS. NEEDS FOUR TO FIVE YEARS IN BOTTLE. DRINK IN 2023. FEBRUARY 2017 JAMESSUCKLING.COM JS 98

MEDIUM TO DEEP GARNET-PURPLE IN COLOR, THE 2015 PETRUS (BOTTLED IN MID-JULY 2017) OPENS IN ITS OWN TIME TO REVEAL CRUSHED BLACK CHERRIES, WARM PLUMS, MULBERRIES AND CEDAR CHEST SUGGESTIONS WITH TOUCHES OF ANISE, LAVENDER, BEEF DRIPPINGS AND WILD THYME PLUS A WAFT OF CRUSHED ROCKS. MEDIUM TO FULL-BODIED, IT FILLS THE PALATE WITH GENEROUS, EXUBERANT, WONDERFULLY LAYERED RED, BLACK AND PERFUMED BLUE FRUITS CONTRASTED BEAUTIFULLY BY VERY RIPE, VERY FINE-GRAINED AND VERY FIRM TANNINS PLUS AN ETHEREAL LINE OF SEAMLESS ACID, FINISHING LONG AND MINERALLY. OLIVIER BERROUET AND HIS TEAM HAVE KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK IN 2015. LOOK FOR THIS PÉTRUS TO BUILD AND UNFOLD OVER THE NEXT 20 YEARS AND CONFIDENTLY CELLAR THIS LEGEND FOR 40+ YEARS.

Fine Wine and Spirits

Since 2016, and under the authority of the LCBO, Waddington’s continues to be the only auction house permitted to consign and sell wine and spirits within the secondary market in Ontario. Waddington’s previously conducted the LCBO’s Vintages Fine Wine and Spirits auctions from 2009 – 2013. The popularity of collecting wine as an investment grows every year. Many wines offered at auction appreciate in value, especially rare and acclaimed vintages, making auctions an excellent way to build a fine wine portfolio. Our auctions also provide an opportunity for collectors to buy wines that aren’t available through other channels and allow restaurants to build world-class wine lists.
