    Description

    Chateau Petrus 1989
    Pomerol
    Double-Magnum (1)

    The White Collection. Property of a Los Angeles area lady. All wines purchased by her late husband at Sotheby's and stored underground in a chilly temperature and humidity controlled purpose-built cellar.

    "The 1989 Petrus is consistent with previous bottles in the sense that it represents the apotheosis of not only the vineyard, but of Pomerol itself. It still provides that almost surreal cornucopia of aromas, red fruit melted with tar, tobacco, hints of camphor and ash, all delivered with astonishing precision. The palate is perfectly balanced, intense yet paradoxically weightless. This example is one of the finest I have encountered in terms of clarity and precision. Ethereal. If you want to taste a genuine 100-point wine then step this way. Magnificent!" (100 pts. Neal Martin, Vinous, Jul. 2020)
