Tasting Notes

The 1990 Petrus remains incredibly young, one of the least evolved wines of the vintage (along with Montrose and Beausejour-Duffau). This dense ruby/purple-colored effort is beginning to hint at the massive richness and full-bodied intensity lurking beneath its wall of tannin. The vintage’s sweetness, low acidity, and velvety tannins are present in abundance, and the wine is massive in the mouth as well as incredibly pure and well-delineated. I thought it would be drinkable by now, but it appears another 5-10 years will pass before it begins to reach its plateau of maturity.

Provenance

This wine collection, containing just over three thousand bottles, arrives from an avid wine collector who started in the 1980s. This collector toured the world with a personal goal of learning as possible about the world’s top wine regions; eventually becoming a Certified Specialist of Wine with the Society of Wine Educators. Most wines in this collection were sourced directly from local wine stores or imported directly from the wine producer. Wines were stored in a controlled environment with dual refrigeration units.
