- 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.

  • All went as expected. The wines arrived in perfect condition. The 2005 was indeed a good wine. The 1997 not so much, just like the description. Next time I will trust the experts.
