Chateau Petrus 1982

Chateau Petrus 1982
Region:
Pomerol, Bordeaux
Variety:
Bordeaux Blend
1982 was a 10 out of 10 vintage in Bordeaux and it is the vintage that set Petrus into stardom making it the most expensive Bordeaux available. The wine is voluptuous and lavish with an amazing array of layered fruit, ranging from plums, liquorice, spice, cedar, truffles and violets. This wine will evolve and change whilst in the glass leaving an impression that will linger forever.

Vintage 1982 - Talk about a thrill a second, as well as unprecedented decadence (at least for me), consider the rarity of a flight of six double magnums of Petrus! Because there were not many people at the tasting, there was the possibility of having several large glasses of these wines, making judging them all the more fun. And let's not forget the medical benefit of flushing the fat out of one's arteries with such remarkable juice! The 1982 Petrus, while never quite living up to my predictions from cask (I thought it to be a perfect wine), is still a colossal Petrus, exhibiting a backward, sweet, expansive nose of ripe fruit, Provencal herbs, chocolate, and spice. Full-bodied, tannic, and super-concentrated, this wine requires another 5-8 years of cellaring. It should keep for 25-30+ years.

Vintage 1982 - 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 around the mouth. Unbeatable and stunning, with great meaty character. Leave it in the glass and it opens out gloriously.
