Lying in Weybridge, Surrey (EHD)
Pétrus 1982
Pomerol, cru exceptionnel
In original wooden case. Very slightly corroded capsules, one slightly damaged. Three slightly damaged labels, otherwise good appearance. Levels: six into neck, four base of neck, two top-shoulder

Tasting note: Picked in one day by a large team at the end of a very hot harvest. My highest marks in the early to mid-1990s: rich, velvety, fleshy, ‘a velvet-lined mouthfiller’. Fully evolved but with all the components to warrant a long life. Most recently, still deep and richly coloured; bouquet harmonious and complacent; full, rich, certainly impressive but if one is to be overcritical, a bit obvious and lacking the zest and drama of the top Médocs. But this will not deter the world’s richest. Last tasted Oct 2000 *****
12 bottles per lot
