Description

Pétrus 1980 vintage is particularly surprising. The 1979 and 1981 vintages having a fairly average reputation (for the estate), Petrus 1980, on the other hand, is a great success!

On the nose, Petrus 1980 distils aromas of black and red fruits full of sugar, burnt grass, tar and a hint of candied sugar.
On the palate, it is very rich, moderately full-bodied and shows an incredible length.
It is a perfectly ripe Petrus, filled with aromas of fruit covered in notes of vanilla, tar and blond tobacco.

Condition

Level very top shoulder, good label. Provenance From the cellar of the former Head Sommelier at The Savoy Hotel, London
