1982 Petrus Bordeaux - 98 Pts!
From barrel this remains one of the greatest wines I have ever tasted. Whether fining and filtration pulled more out of it than was intended only the proprietor knows. However the 1982 Petrus turned in a strong performance in Philadelphia in contrast to other tastings when it has been less than spectacular. The color reveals some amber at the edge. A sweet nose of caramel roasted herbs cherry jam cedar and smoke is followed by a thick full-bodied unctuously-textured low acid Petrus that is approaching full maturity. This was a dazzling showing for this 1982 which has performed irregularly since birth. Although abundant tannin remains the wine is sweet smoky and ideal for drinking now and over the next 20-25 years. RP
