Sothebys Presents Magnificent Bordeaux From A European Cellar 1

Château Pétrus 2000

One glance at this collection will show that the very best of Bordeaux is at the heart of the matter. The instant idea that occurs is that this sale is made for amazing ‘vertical’ tastings, or more leisurely trips down the years over dinners. By far the best way to know a château, or wine property, is to watch it in a series of vintages. Gradually you come to understand how that estate or domain ‘ticks’, how it works, what it is doing and where it is going. The real inner character of the wine is revealed, staying true to itself through all the fascinating variations of weather, and thus style, that meteorology can conceive. Highlights include 12 bottles of exceptional Château Pétrus 2000.
