Considering the fact that wine administrator Christian Moueix was contemplating not making a 2002 Petrus, I was surprised by how strongly this wine performed. However, production was cut in half, with only 1,800 cases produced. The resulting offering has the potential to be the top wine of the appellation. A deep plum/purple color is followed by sweet aromas of mulberries, black cherries, vanillin, and hints of truffles as well as licorice. It is impressively pure and medium to full-bodied, with moderately high tannin in the finish. This is not a blockbuster, brawny, super-concentrated Petrus, but it is one of the biggest 2002s made in Pomerol. Moreover, it will possess as much longevity as L’Evangile, Lafleur or Le Gay, three other noteworthy Pomerols. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2025
