PETRUS, THE HOLY GRAIL OF POMEROL: 1 X 6 LITRE PETRUS 1995
1 IMPERIAL (6L) PETRUS 1995
1 Imperial (6 litre) of Petrus 1995 in original wooden case
The very word Petrus creates a "frisson" unlike any other wine name - and the liquid in the glass induces a dream- like silence as its enormous, almost roasted flavour envelops the palate. The sheer exoticism of this revered vineyard, where clay combines with Merlot to make something wildly heady, needs to be experienced by everyone once in their life (preferably many more times!). Petrus does not taste like other Bordeaux - it is not "classic" but stupendously original, full of oriental spice box flavours which unfold endlessly. A one-off wine that inhabits a world of its own and, of course, a rarity due to its small (11.5 hectares) size.
