Lot Details


Petrus 1982 


u. 6bn, 5 damp stained labels, oxidized capsules, 1 slightly torn, purchased from Sotheby's Hong Kong "The Philanthropist's Cellar" in March 2018 

Mature colour. A great nose of prunes, spices, huge character and "presence". Liquorice, with sweet, gummy definition. Some sweet aniseed. A lovely sweet "leather" taste. Now has a pruney finish, with sweet, soft cinnamon at the end. Really mocha as it lingers on the palate. Superb, full, rich, ultra-dimensional taste. Rolls round the mouth. Unbeatable and stunning, with great meaty character. Leave it in the glass and it opens out gloriously. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
