Description

    Chateau Petrus 1978
    Pomerol
    1bn, 1vhs, 1hs, 3bsl, 2ltal
    Bottle (4)
    "Pale, mid rusty-ruby. Sweet liqueur on the palate with a slightly dusty nose. Very sweet start and fully developed with attractive dusty, biscuit (sweet tea biscuit) aromas. Very fresh with more depth than any other 1978 red bordeaux I can remember, but no excess of alcohol. Jewelly texture and freshness and great opulence but in a fresh idiom. Wonderfully complete even if not the headiest, densest Pétrus. Very, very long." (18.5pts JR, Dec 2009)

    "Full-bodied, with rich, opulent flavors and a lovely ripe finish. Like an autumn day." (89 pts. JS, Wine Spectator, Feb. 1991)
