1998 PetrusBordeaux, France
|Capacity||:||750 ml - Standard Bottle|
|Rating||:||AG98 - Vinous by Antonio Galloni|
|Tasting Note||:||The 1998 Petrus is the best Right Bank of the decade and here, against the 2000 and 2001, there is no contest. This is the business. It has a ripe, opulent and ineffably complex bouquet with brilliant definition and a sense of mineralitéthat is more common in a Burgundy Grand Cru. The palate is full-bodied with perfect balance and yet it knows that it does not need to grip the mouth, rather lavishes it in pure tensile red fruit. There is tension and electricity that effortlessly counters the density and opulence of this Pomerol, delivering a luxuriant hint of menthol on the finish. Astonishing. Tasted at the Petrus dinner at the Épure restaurant in Hong Kong.|
