1982 Petrus, Pomerol (depressed cork, writing on label, bin soiled label)

SKU #1547742 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2013)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is more translucent than Lafleur and a glowing brick-red in hue. There’s plenty of head-turning exoticism on the nose: spice, truffle, the coffee-roaster’s yard. On the palate, the wine shows its age without being tired; the acid levels seemed among the lowest of the group, and once again there was no sense of bony senescence. The flavours were unapologetically mature: wild mushroom, beef stock, fine tobacco. (AJ) Inner quote mark (10/2016)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 1982 Petrus is consistent with my previous notes. This has a lovely bouquet, perhaps a little purer than the bottle from February 2018 with just joyful black cherries, black truffle and cedar aromas, more red fruit developing with aeration. I appreciate the brightness. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, moderate in terms of complexity, more secondary notes towards the second half with sage, undergrowth and touches of leather. (NM) Inner quote mark (7/2020)
