1995 Petrus - Wine Spectator - Jan 31, 1998: A magnificent Pétrus. A virtual spicerack of a wine, this Bordeaux features exotic, spicy aromas, with nuances of cinnamon, strawberries and raspberries. Full-bodied and tannic, with an amazing wild berry, sweet fruit and spice aftertaste. Best after 2002. 3,200 cases made.
Robert Parker's Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition - Jan 1998: The 1995 Petrus boasts an opaque purple color followed by a sensational jammy nose of black fruits and spices. This monstrous, over-sized wine is oozing with extract, glycerin, and jammy fruit, yet it is oh, so pure and well-balanced. Its mouthcoating, teeth-staining levels of extract are hauntingly close to the profoundly perfect 1989 and 1990 Petrus. The 1995 is awesome! Anticipated maturity: 2004-2035. Last tasted 11/97.
