1982 Petrus Merlot - France - Bordeaux - Pomerol - Red

France - Bordeaux - Pomerol

Red Merlot
Producer Notes

Petrus is a made almost entirely of Merlot grapes grown in Bordeaux's right bank Pomerol appellation. Although never officially classified, the chateau has long been considered on par with the First Growths from the left bank. The ownership of the estate has passed between the Arnaud family in the 19th century, to Madame Loubat at the end of WWII, and finally to Jean-Pierre Moueix in recent... More »

($1899-$2,195) The bottle in the blind flight appeared to have a healthy cork but was disappointing, with aromas of mocha and menthol; a penetrating middle palate with good but not outstanding richness; hints of herbs and mushroom; and substantial, slightly drying tannins. The second bottle was better but still not up to the reputation of this vintage: Full medium-deep red. Very sweet, almost syrupy nose of cherry, chocolate and roast coffee. Fat and silky but with its fruit element rather suppressed. Hugely tannic, even a bit dry, on the end. Based on this event, and two or three earlier samples of this wine, it hard to avoid the conclusion that this is a very good but hardly stellar vintage for Petrus.

Thick and sweet and actually rather austere still. Long. Intense. Mineral. More Médoc-like than the Ch Lafleur 1982 tasted alongside. Quite lush with notes of gunpowder somehow. Round. Smoky. Some right-bank bloody character.

From barrel, this remains one of the greatest wines I have ever tasted. Whether fining and filtration pulled more out of it than was intended, only the proprietor knows. However, the 1982 Petrus turned in a strong performance in Philadelphia in contrast to other tastings when it has been less than spectacular. The color reveals some amber at the edge. A sweet nose of caramel, roasted herbs, cherry jam, cedar, and smoke is followed by a thick, full-bodied, unctuously-textured, low acid Petrus that is approaching full maturity. This was a dazzling showing for this 1982, which has performed irregularly since birth. Although abundant tannin remains, the wine is sweet, smoky, and ideal for drinking now and over the next 20-25 years. A bottle drunk in France in March, 2000, was equally sublime.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
