Petrus is unquestionably one of the strongest, richest, fullest, most powerful wines of the 1993 vintage. When Petrus enjoys an abundant, healthy crop, production averages between 4000-4500 cases. In 1992, only 2600 cases were produced, and in 1993, a mere 2000 cases. The result may be the wine of the vintage. The color is thick, black/purple. The nose offers up powerful scents of vanilla, Asian spices, black-cherries, and other sweet black fruits. Full-bodied, extremely concentrated, unctuous, and powerful, this massive, chewy, backward Petrus will need 10 years of cellaring and last for 25-35 years. It is revealing better sweetness and expansiveness of fruit on the mid-palate than its neighbor and rival, Lafleur. Hence, the slightly higher numerical rating. Don't anticipate full enjoyment of the 1993 Petrus before 2005.
