Ch Petrus 1982

Jancis Robinson: Ruby turning to brick. Still medium intensity. Huge jump from 1998 on the nose. Big, smoky cloud with lots of raw meat character. Very fat and enveloping, like a great big fat flapping lady's embrace. Not especially intense nose. Almost evanescent. Lots of raw meat and some violets. Quite marked acidity. Still very, very fine tannins on the finish. Exotic. The smell of an old leather handbag/purse. Very, very long. Bouquet kept opening out in the glass. Edge of burnt sugar. Much more delicate than you might think. 20 points
