Nous Adorons Château Pétrus!

Fall 2018 Fine Wine Auction

#
CHÂTEAU PÉTRUS 1975 (2) 98+ WA

CHÂTEAU PÉTRUS 1975
POMEROL.
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.
