Subtle yet rich aromas of grilled meat, black olive and dark red fruits. Full-bodied, very soft and silky, with ultrarefined tannins. The finish lasts for minutes. The quality of the tannins is beautiful and the complexity of fruit, earth and spices is impressive. Drinking this is like listening to Mozart... Wine Spectator

1988, a perfect bottle, not the most incredible Petrus, just finesse and good texture we love at this age.

Subtle with rich aromas of meat, spice and red fruits. Very soft and silky, with youthful almost underripe tannins. The finish is long, truly elegant. The quality of the tannins is beautiful. All the components are in the right place, the prominent tannins indicate, that this wine should be left alone for at least a decade. Special, but comes with a serious price tag. A privilege having had the opportunity to taste it! 3,500 cases made.

Miras secas con Recuerdos de eucalipto. Intensidad complejidad. Suave elegante fino. Largo final.

It is going out from the best time for drink it, anyway a great experience. The wine has become increasingly herbaceous with the tannins pushing through the fruit and becoming more aggressive. The wine started off life impressively deep ruby/purple but is now showing some amber at the edge. It is a medium-bodied, rather elegant style of Petrus with a distinctive cedary, almost celery component intermixed with a hint of caramel and sweet mulberry and black cherry fruit

First Petrus! Well integrated with a super long finish and a nice undercurrent of acidity.
