    Petrus 1988
    Pomerol, cru exceptionnel
    Repacked from original wooden case. Very badly bin-soiled and damp-affected, damaged labels. Levels into neck
    Tasting note: The 1988 Petrus is reassuringly outstanding......The healthy dark ruby/purple colour is followed by a young, backward wine with high tannin levels, medium body, and an inner-core of sweet, ripe fruit. It needs another 7-10 years of cellaring. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 103 (Feb 1996).
