    Petrus 1980
    Pomerol, cru exceptionnel
    In original wooden case, damp-affected and damaged. Slightly corroded capsules. Badly bin-soiled labels, damp-affected, some slightly damaged labels. Levels: eleven into neck, one base of neck
    Tasting note: The 1980 Petrus turned in a surprisingly strong performance. A roasted herb, melted road tar, and sweet, jammy-scented nose is followed by a rich, medium to full-bodied wine with considerable length. It appears to have become more impressive with age. Robert Parker; Wine Advocate (103) Feb 1996.
