Tasting Notes for Petrus, 1966:
Excellent, but even more highly regarded elsewhere than by me, the 1966 Petrus has a cedar, herbaceous, sweet, fruity bouquet and is full bodied, with very good viscous, ripe, berry flavors. This big, dense, somewhat coarse wine seems just a trifle out of synch. The 1966 Petrus has plenty of tannin, alcohol, and flavor, but they have never fully meshed. Anticipated maturity: Now-2002. Last tasted, 6/91.
