    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate : The Petrus 2013 is a very fine wine for the vintage, although whether it will evolve into one of the best Pomerol crus is open. That is not to say I dislike this Petrus, on the contrary, Olivier Berrouet has clearly done a fantastic job given the growing season. However, having tasted here from barrel for a decade now, it is clear that this "maverick genius" decides to give profundity a miss in some years.

    The nose has a glowing warmth about it, a sensation that is uncommon in this vintage, and in fact it almost reminded me of a slimmed-down version of the 2009. It is very pure with marine scents coming through with aeration. The palate is rounded on the entry: velvety smooth in texture with noticeable spice on the back palate. I do not think this Petrus possesses the complexity or persistency of the precious two vintages, simply a Petrus that will just want to go out there and give sensory pleasure without the intellectual import.
