2004 Pipeau, St-Emilion

SKU #1035583 91 points Wine Spectator

 Dense purple in color, with intense aromas of ripe fruit, spices and espresso. Full-bodied and chewy, with lots of fruit and velvety tannins. Impressive concentration for the vintage, yet balanced, caressing and enjoyable. Excellent. *Top 100 Wines of 2007* (JS)  (3/2007)

90 points James Suckling

 Flowers and berries with hints of Indian spices on the nose. This is very perfumed. Medium bodied, with lovely fruit and fine tannins. A bit austere, but with bright acidity. Very drinkable now, better get some steaks on the grill.  (12/2010)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A classic St.-Emilion fruit bomb, the medium to full-bodied 2004 Pipeau is loaded with black cherry and cassis fruit. Lush and opulent with no hard edges or angularity, this in-your-face offering will please the masses. Bordeaux needs more wines that deliver this kind of character and quality at this price point. Drink it over the next decade. (RP)  (6/2007)

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.
