Description

    Chateau Petrus 1996
    Pomerol
    bn, nl
    Bottle (1)
    "The 1996 Petrus is a big, monolithic, foursquare wine with an impressively opaque purple color, and sweet berry fruit intermixed with earth, pain grille, and coffee scents. Full-bodied and muscular, with high levels of tannin, and a backward style, this wine (less than 50% of the production was bottled as Petrus) will require patience. It is a mammoth example." (92pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #122, April 1999)
