Petrus 1983 (1 IMP)
Good level, label damp soiled
In 2019, another view of this wine confirms how exciting it is, luscious, thick and opulent and as dense as its colour. A magnificent nose of spicy depth, a wine of its time - and I often yearn for this. A fabulous blackcurrant/liquorice taste that enfolds the palate, with that finish of roasted cumin. If Petrus had a voice, it would be the purring bass of Kurt Moll! Once again, this wine is an extraordinary manifestation of Merlot. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
