    May 8, 2022 - From Imperial I found this wine very impressive. Great combination of a well calibrated and good quality fruit core with very attractive secondary notes.

    January 1, 2022 - Been holding on to this wine for years to have on a special occasion. Beautiful ruby in colour. Notes of red fruit and floral. Very elegant tannins. Great wine, would I pay this again, probably not. Maybe my palate is not refined enough.

    March 2, 2019 - An Epic Vertical of Petrus (Ten Trinity Latour Club, London): Far away the most expressive wine of this flight. An explosive nose of violets and flowers. Gorgeous red fruit and blueberries. So beautiful.

    September 21, 2013 - At Carelia in Helsinki. Decanted more than one hour. Vibrant nose of mineral,licorice, sous-bois and dark fruit. Medium to full bodied ,very firm and tannic, opulent mineral,licorice and dark fruity flavors. Still very smooth and rich with impeccable balance and a long finish. Great with veal. This was a long dream finally coming through to taste Petrus. We paid 550 € for the bottle that was a decent bargain at a restaurant I would say.
