1989 Petit-Village, Pomerol

SKU #1014609

90 points Robert Parker: "Critics might take exception to this sweet, round, in-your-face style of wine that is obvious, but oh, so delicious. Its huge, chocolate, plum, and sweet oak-scented bouquet roars from the glass. In the mouth, there are expansive, fat, hedonistic flavors that coat the palate with gobs of plump, ripe fruit. There is a glaring lack of acidity and structure, but there is no doubt this generous wine will offer loads of pleasure over the next 5-7 years..." (04/92) 89 points Wine spectator: "Loads of chocolate, berry and tobacco character here. Full-bodied, with firm, chewy tannins, a medium, ripe fruit aftertaste and a touch of coffee.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. Best after 2005." (05/99)

Additional Information:



- 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.


- 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.
