Lot #212. Petrus 1971

Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Region: France, Bordeaux, Pomerol.
Score: 20 JR.
"This rich, fresh monster was fabulous. My only criticism is that serving it as the twelfth wine in a dinner line-up was not giving us the treat of enjoying it when our taste buds were at their freshest. It had the life, sap and savour . . . . I think this wine may just go on and on and on. Surely the best 1971 known to wine-drinking man? Or woman. (Although I see I have an equally enthusiastic note on one bottle of Ch Latour 1971 to have come my excessively fortunate way...)" Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, Jul 2014
Provenance: The Redwood Cellar
Notes: High shoulder, Torn, wrinkled, lightly corroded capsule, lightly torn, lightly scuffed, lightly faded, very lightly damp stained label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $6,500
