PETRUS 1961
Petrus 1961
Pomerol
u. hs, label very slightly soiled and peeling down left side, capsule has been cut to reveal '1er DES GRANDS CRUS, POMEROL' but vintage and 'Petrus' not clear, US import label overlapping main label at bottom.

A fascinating fact about this wine is that it finished its alcoholic fermentation in Spring 1962, with the malolactic following in the summer! Incredible curranty nose with a slight affinity with Port. So rich and 'earthy', in a totally refined way. Damp earth after rain. Amazing, almost 'Porty' wine on the palate. Yet such fresh fruit at the end. Immense. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
