Tasting Notes

The 2006 Petrus now seems to be evolving more slowly than the 2006 Le Pin: the fruit darker with raspberry coulis, mulberry, hints of marmalade and crushed rose petals coming forth. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, gently gripping the mouth and demonstrating admirable weight and complexity. You might almost think there was some Cabernet Franc towards the finish thanks to the subtle peppery notes coming through. It is probably ready to drink now, but the substance here suggests that it will age for another decade and continue to offer pleasure long after. Tasted January 2016.

Provenance

Seller:I began collecting during University in my early 20's while working retail for an Ontario winery. Initially I was drawn to the wines of Italy, but over time began to focus on French wines, especially Burgundy. I have always had a great appreciation for white wine, particularly for the wines of Chablis, Loire, Austria and Germany. Generally I purchased wines from the LCBO and directly from agents ( I keep all my invoices and probably have digital or paper copies of invoices for everything).The wines have been stored at home, in temperature controlled, specially built wine cellars.
