Description

Petrus 1998

Pomerol

Good level, excellent appearance

Beautiful, thick, rich, dense, Rubens-like colour. Amazing complexity on the nose - mega-dimensional. Vanillin, cinnamon, intoxicating oriental spices nose. With time, mocha creeps in. This has the absolute fascination of Petrus. Formidable body and fruit on the palate, with enormous depth of flavour, but still elegant. Incredible dark chocolate and black fruit taste. It just never goes away. For me, the greatest and one of the wines of my life. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
