What is guaranteed?

Petrus 1990


Levels into the neck, slightly nicked labels, slightly scuffed capsules

There is a deeper colour on the 1990 than on the 1989 - denser. Incredibly opulent, plummy Petrus. Very voluptuous. Wonderful dried fruit flavours - almost Napa-like. Mocha and mint notes. Extraordinary, ultra-ripe plums and prunes taste. Atypical. Sweet aniseed finish. The great comparison is between this and the 1989.
