- Tasting : Omar Khan - 97 Points+
The '52 was a sheer delight. There are honeyed fruit notes and flowers on the nose. There are spices, and a glorious creaminess to this wine, pepper and dark fruit, dancing acidity, not nearly as sweet as Petrus most often is (essentially that's the '52 vintage), not as robust perhaps on the palate, but then it flares forth again, supple and rounded, chocolate and plums, some maraschino cherry, hints of cedar just dazzling. The finish just fans out vibrantly, balanced, rich and generous. It probably just lacks a bit of the concentration of the '50, with hints of slightly more Cabernet Franc here (hence along with the vintage impact, the slightly greater 'masculinity'), but all quibbles aside, it is just an entrancing wine.

- Info about bottler:
Over the years, Van der Meulen's wines from Ostend have a great reputation for buyers of old wines at the auction and also pay high prices for wines from this bottler. What was the secret of Van der Meulen's bottles at that time? First of all, Mr Van der Meulen has had to be a connoisseur who could taste good and, when selecting at the Chateaux, was able to pick out the best barrels. Undoubtedly, he will also be one of the first to report his selection at the chateau each year. In addition, he was one of the best bottlers.

- Dégustation Omar Khan - 97 Points+
Le '52 était un pur délice. Il y a des notes de fruits miellés et des fleurs sur le nez. Il y a des épices et une texture crémeuse à ce vin, au poivre et aux fruits noirs, une acidité dansante, pas aussi douce que Petrus le plus souvent (essentiellement le millésime 52), pas aussi robuste peut-être en bouche, en avant, souple et arrondi, chocolat et prunes, un peu de cerise au marasquin, des notes de cèdre tout simplement éblouissantes. La finition vient de s'épanouir vibrante, équilibrée, riche et généreuse. Il manque probablement un peu de concentration des années 50, avec des notes légèrement plus élevées de cabernet franc (d'où l'impact vintage, la «masculinité» un peu plus grande), mais à part les arguties, c'est juste un vin envoûtant.

    Désolé mais ce n'est pas de ma faute, vous avez accepté le colis que vous auriez du refuser, puis le colis auriez était revenu de retour la je pouvais porte une plainte a la poste belge ce qui n'est plus possible maintenant (pas de preuve), ce n'est pas normal que le colis a été reconditionné en France à mon insu, vous pouvez déposer une plainte auprès de la poste Française avec votre facture que vous aviez une comande de 6 bouteilles et que vous avez que reçu 2 bouteilles. / Sorry but this is not my fault, you accepted the package you had to have refused then the package had come back, and then I could complain to the belgian post what is not possible now (no more proof), it is not normal that the package was repacked in France without my knowledge, you could file a complaint with the French post with your invoice that you were 6 bottles that you most received. The French post did the wrong not the belgian mail or I, the 6 bottles were packed according to the standards of packaging

    De strip had geen originele witte achterzijde, zoals het bij Piet Pienter moet zijn, maar een op maat ingekleeft karton. Schrijfvrij klopt niet. Ingekleurde prenten. Verkoper reageert niet op e-mail.

    With your previous 2 purchases you will see through the feedbacks that you also did not receive your delivery. apparently this is a custom with you, I have informed you that your address was not correct,
    I am constantly bled because Mr. is not receiving his shipment while it is not my fault and now negative feedback which is totally unjust

    Spedizione veloce, packaging ottimo e bottiglie di vino in buono stato. Purtroppo la qualità del vino era mediocre, ma è il rischio che si corre con le bottiglie invecchiate

    I have sent four bottles, I can not help it if you only receive 3. Maybe 1 was stolen by the sending company in your country (you could file a complaint for that) I have already sent more than 15000 bottles you are the first with such a complaint, My apologies for these inconveniences
