Reviews of purchase Petrus, Pomerol AOC, 2008
Wine noble ruby color with a purple hue.
Gorgeous, full-bodied, deep wine with silky tannins admire elegant, perfectly balanced taste, in which the tones of raspberry, plum and cherry perfectly complement the theme of minerals, black tea and incense. Long aftertaste has a great balance.
Rich, multi-faceted bouquet charms refined combination of flavors of black currant and ripe cherries, sweetish shades of mocha and caramel notes of tea leaves and underbrush.
Wine amazing both in pure form as an aperitif or in combination with dishes of Spanish, Italian food: pasta, hot Neapolitan, chicken in sherry in Spanish and others. It also served to dishes and more refined French cuisine: foie gras, truffles and white veal. By Petrus as snacks great choice of ham, cheese, Gorgonzola and other blue cheeses.

The label of this legendary wine scarlet letters emblazoned one word "Petrus" no "Pétrus" as a truly great Lord does not need titles. Touch the glass of Petrus - a privilege available only to the chosen. Surrounded by the magical aura of mystery and reverence, Petrus is a demand that the price of a bottle of wine for a good harvest soars to the heavens. The wine is made from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc grown on a truly unique soils rich blue clay and iron, which have the ability to retain water for a long time even in the hottest years. This legendary wine of the highest quality produced a very limited edition, and is an incredible demand among collectors. Annual production of wine Petrus is very limited and often pre-painted on trading houses, so you should hurry up and fill up their collection as soon as possible, because over time the price may increase by several times. In particular, the vintage 1982 set a world record in 2009 was sold at auction in Hong Kong for 94,000 dollars!
