flagBordeaux / France

The 1962 and 1959 Petrus were two of the finest bottles I have ever tasted of these vintages. The fully mature 1962 was reminiscent of a Medoc, with its minty, chocolatey, herbal, cedary-scented nose, medium-bodied, well-proportioned flavors, and structured personality. The wine still possesses a healthy dark ruby color with only slight amber at the edge. Although not that powerful or opulent, it is an outstanding example of Petrus made in a more graceful, elegant manner. Tasted blind, I would never have picked it out as a Pomerol. ||The notes for this wine are taken from the description of Series IV - Flight A of the 1995 tasting conducted in Munich by Helga and Hardy Rodenstock. Many years after the tasting from which this note derives allegations were made concerning the authenticity of old and rare bottles of wine sold by Hardy Rodenstock to collectors around the world. The matter has been the subject of numerous articles, litigation and at least one book. Mr. Parker believes that the wines served to him at this tasting were authentic so this note and the others from that specific tasting continue to be posted on eRobertParker.com.
