Broadbentism: 1980 Chateau Petrus

"In 1986, Hans Peter Frericks gave a lavish Petrus tasting/dinner in the Margrave's Palace in his home town of Munich. A magnum of the '80 was produced for the tasting and an imperiale for the dinner. It was a bit over the top, spicy, specious but an attractive drink. And drink it we did, accompanied by caviar dished out like porridge. I was sitting next to Christian Mouiex who agreed that 'the beluga was sensational but did nothing for the Petrus'. Last sniffed Sept 1995. At best **." MB
