1992 Petrus, Pomerol

SKU #110118 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 1992 Petrus is clearly one of the two candidates for the 'wine of the vintage.' The normal production of 4,500 cases was severely reduced to only 2,600 cases, resulting in an atypically concentrated, powerful, rich wine with a dark, saturated ruby/purple color, a tight but promising nose of sweet black-cherry fruit, vanillin, caramel, and herb-tinged mocha notes. Concentrated and powerful, with superb density of fruit and richness, as well as wonderful sweetness to its tannin, this is a brilliant effort for the vintage. (RP)  (12/1994)

K&L Notes

93-94 points Wine Advocate's Neal Martin: "First tasted at the Arches when the lovely Ivana offered a glass in July 2002. Rounded herbal, minerally plummy nose. Very good depth. Palate more concentrated than 1993. Again quite herbal, good fruit concentration with notes of plums and mocha. Quite an exuberant wine which outclassed the 1993. Very enjoyable Petrus and perhaps under-estimated by some people. Tasted again in March 2004 from the splendid imperial: the nose is muted at first but evolves with aeration. There is lovely sweetness amongst the plummy aromas. The palate has good concentration for a 1992, still backward with notes of roasted herbs and burnt toast. Good depth. Raisin, espresso finish. Good length. Very fine."

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
