Tasted at the Pomerol Comparative Exploration tasting in London, the 1982 Petrus was compared directly with 1982 Le Pin and Lafleur, a week after tasting the same wine from magnum. There's context for you. My conclusion is that magnums show much better than bottles and secondly, it lags one or two steps behind those aforementioned Pomerols. That should not detract from a great wine. It possesses a lovely bouquet with black fruit, cedar, smoke and fresh black truffles, modest in comparison to Le Pin, almost straight-laced without the disarming precision of the Lafleur. The palate has a wonderful sense of balance, the acidity just about perfect, complex but not profound. The tannin frame a mixture of red and black fruit infused with sage and white pepper, hints of leather towards the long and tender finish. If you can disassociate this Petrus with its value then it is just a delicious Pomerol. The question is: can you actually do that?
