1947 Petrus Bordeaux - 100 Pts!

Wine of the Century? Drunk twice in the last three months believe me I know how lucky I am the 1947 Petrus is the most decadent wine of the century. While not as port-like asthe 1947 Cheval Blanc it is a massive unctuously-textured viscous wine with amazing power richness and sweet fruit. The nose explodes from the glass offering jammy fruit smoke and buttery caramel scents. The wine's viscosity is reminiscent of 10-W-40 motor oil. It is so sweet thick and rich one suspects a spoon could stand upright. The wine is loaded with dream-like quantities of fruit as well as high alcohol but there is no noticeable tannin. At two tastings a chateau-bottled offering in New York and a Belgian bottling in Bordeaux the only difference I noted was that the Belgian-bottled wine was slightly more evolved. While drinkable now given its amazing fruit extract and high levels of glycerin and alcohol it is capable of lasting two more decades. RP Please call us to finalize all arrangements for this item.
