    Petrus 1950
    Pomerol, cru exceptionnel
    No capsule. Upper surface of cork damaged. Remains of label only. Handwritten slip-label. Level upper-shoulder
    Tasting note: It was the extraordinary 1950 Petrus, along with the 1950 Lafleur, first served to me years ago by Jean-Pierre Moueix, that made me realize how spectacular this vintage must have been in Pomerol. The wine is still a young, mammothly-constituted Petrus that is less evolved than more recent knock-out vintages such as 1961. Massive and rich, with spectacular colour saturation and the sweet, unctuous texture Petrus obtains in ripe years, this wine will last for another 20-30 years. Robert Parker. Wine Advocate 95 (Oct 1994)
