19th Century French Polished Iron and Oak Decorative Wine Barrel Top
Decorate a wine cellar or a bar with this antique wine barrel. Created in the wine Bordeaux region of France, circa 1880, the decorative piece features a wine barrel top made of oak and strapped with the original round metal bands; the circular top is embellished with painted words including the inscription “LR Petrus”. The half-barrel is in excellent condition commensurate with age and use, with lots of character and adorns a rich patina with polished rings. A wonderful Father’s Day present! Château Pétrus is a Bordeaux, France, wine estate located in the Pomerol appellation near its eastern border to Saint-Émilion. A small estate of just 11.4 hectares (28 acres), it produces a red wine entirely from Merlot grapes (since the end of 2010), and produces no second wine. Although the wines of Pomerol have never been classified, Pétrus is widely regarded as the outstanding wine of the appellation. Pétrus leads a duo of Pomerol estates in extreme prices, along with Le Pin, that rank consistently among the world’s most expensive wines. Indeed, a 750ml bottle of Pétrus wine is priced at an average of $2,630! Measure: 15.5″ diameter.
