Lot Details


Petrus 1978


u. 2bn, 5vts, 5hs, labels and capsules slightly scuffed by case dividers, 8 slightly sunken corks

At 40 years old, this is show-stopping. A huge blackberry nose leads to glorious earthy/tobacco depth of flavour on the palate. The impact, bounce and fresh attack are terrific. It has never been better and thrilled everyone around the table. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
