CHÂTEAU PÉTRUS 1975
U. 1 X TS. 1 X HS. WRINKLED LABELS. SCUFFED CAPSULES
ONE OF THE MOST RUSTIC AND POWERFUL PETRUS OF THE LAST 25 YEARS, THIS WINE STILL HAS A MURKY GARNET/PLUM/PURPLE COLOR, A GORGEOUS NOSE OF OVERRIPE BLACK CHERRIES, MOCHA, CARAMEL, CHOCOLATE, AND A HINT OF IRON AND BLOOD. FULL-BODIED, SUPER-CONCENTRATED, WITH MASSIVE TANNIN AND EXTRACT, THIS BEHEMOTH PETRUS CAN BE ENJOYED BUT STILL SEEMS ANOTHER 5-10 YEARS AWAY FROM MATURITY. IT IS CERTAINLY A 50-70 YEAR WINE, WITH EXQUISITE CONCENTRATION AND INTENSITY, BUT SEEMINGLY THE ROUGH EDGES WILL NO DOUBT BE LESS APPEALING TO THOSE LOOKING FOR PURE SEAMLESSNESS. PERHAPS THAT WILL EMERGE WITH BOTTLE AGE. ANTICIPATED MATURITY: 2005-2040 DECEMBER 2002 98+ WA

Waddington’s is the sole and first company in Ontario permitted to provide the sale by auction of fine wine and spirits, under the authority of the LCBO. Waddington’s previously conducted the LCBO’s Vintages Fine Wine and Spirits auctions from 2009 – 2013. The popularity of collecting wine as an investment grows every year. Many wines offered at auction appreciate in value, especially rare and acclaimed vintages, making auctions an excellent way to build a fine wine portfolio. Our auctions also provide an opportunity for collectors to buy wines that aren’t available through other channels and allow restaurants to build world-class wine lists.
