Chateau Petrus Pomerol 1984
Château Petrus - or rather just Petrus, because some castle is not really there on site - is surely the ultimate cult wine.
Petrus was one of the first castles to harvest green to intensify the grape material, and in some vintages it is today more than 50% of the yield that remains in the vineyard or around the optical sorting plant and the sorting tables in front of the basement. The grapes are always harvested at the end of the day, and in recent years the grapes have started to be picked for berries on the perfect afternoon. Thus, in 2016, after the harvest had started on 28 September, 14 more afternoons were to be done before the whole harvest was in house.
jeg købte i 1988 en kasse med 12 stk. Dengang betalte jeg ca 1500 pr stk. En hel fantastisk vin. Der var flere af mine venner i Holbæk der smagte den. Jeg var selv klar hvor stort det var. Helt fantastisk. Skam man ikke har penge til de mere.
