1999 Chateau Petrus Pomerol

Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Less power and more elegance with the accent on the fruit. Harmonious and balanced with a fine grain of tannin on the finish.

An incredible power, depth and richness yet a remarkable balance with penetrating aromas of ripe mulberry, black currant and fruit and spicy vanilla oak, setting it apart from all Bordeauxs finest wines.
