Petrus 1989

Pomerol

1 bt - Good level, label very slightly soiled along right edge, slightly torn at top right corner and slightly worn along bottom base

From magnum in 2016, this has all the exoticism of the cru, with richness and depth, still evolving with its powerful tannins. Nevertheless, it slips down with great ease! I think, now, the 1990 has more depth and volume, but this is pure joy, fine-textured and with myriad, spicy tastes. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
