Pétrus (Vandermeulen) 1947

Pomerol, Bordeaux

4cm

Colour

"The 1947 Petrus is a legendary Pomerol, alas, one too often the target of nefarious forgers. This bottle is genuine, served at a private dinner by a famous Belgian collector whose family purchased Petrus bottles long before it came to fame. This is a bottling by Vandermeulen. It is commensurate with its age, quite degraded on the rim with a deep brick core. The bouquet is divine from the start, heady Lamar’s of more black fruit than red, laced with shavings of black truffle and mint, surprisingly quite Médoc-like in style when I am anticipating more fleshy, opulent scents associated with that season’s hot summer. The palate is beautifully balanced with impressive depth even after so many years, hint of tobacco and cedar surfacing with aeration, quite sapid towards the finish that fans out gloriously. It is a truly wonderful Petrus that just might have peaked before I ever had a chance to taste it. But then, the privilege of tasting it at all is something to remember. Review Date: Sep 2018. Drinking Window: 2018-2032" Neal Martin
