Item Overview

Description

Château Pétrus--Vintage 1959
Pomerol, cru exceptionnel
Level: upper shoulder; three part moulded bottle, signs of seepage, capsule cut to reveal cork stamped: "Chateau Petrus 1959, 1er des grands crus, Pomerol"
"The 1962 and the 1959 Pétrus were two of the finest bottles I have ever tasted of these vintages. The 1959 was unctuous, sweet, gloriously fruity, thick, and jammy, with gobs of glycerin, full body, and a viscous, long, heady finish. Fully mature, but revealing considerable intensity and life, this wine that will drink well for another 10-15 years" Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #103 (Feb 1996)
1 jeroboam (4.5 liters) per lot
