1982 Petrus, Pomerol (stained label)

SKU #950422 96 points Wine Spectator

 Dark ruby garnet. Intense tobacco, cedar, berry and blackberry. Full-bodied, silky, firm and fresh. Long. A beauty. One of the best bottles I have ever had. (JS)  (6/2001)

Jancis Robinson

 A bottle bought from Edmund Penning-Rowsell's cellar. Lovely and sweet - very fleshy. Much more structured than the 1990s (Latour and Cheval) just served, also blind. Denser than the Mouton 1982. Very, very easy to like. 19/20 points  (4/2016)

K&L Notes

96 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted at Pebbles/Zachy’s 1982 dinner in Hong Kong. I have been fortunate to taste the Petrus ’82 on several occasions. In a strange way, I am finding bottles more consistent now then several years ago – perhaps a testament to more rigorous provenance? It is a year since I last encountered this Pomerol (also in Hong Kong – a sign of the times I guess.) It has a vibrant bouquet with black fruit, iron filings, black truffle and undergrowth than is both mercurial and complex. The palate is medium-bodied with an almost restless intensity, a fidgeting genius. It seems to offer teasing glimpses, different facets of its personality with every sip. Quite burly on the entry, there are notes of bay leaf, cooked meat, sandalwood and sage. This might well be the finest bottles that I have tasted – I hope they can all be like this." (01/2013)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
