1974 Petrus, Pomerol (bin soiled label)

SKU #1055785

From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pétrus: it just sounds classy. You might not know what it is, but you know that it is precious. To wine connoisseurs, no other word evoke feelings of awe and wonderment: an iconic wine familiar to many, tasted by few. Despite vain efforts by arrivistes, the Californian cult cabernets and some of the garagistes that naïvely equate scarcity with quality; it remains the vinous Holy Grail." (Producer Profile)

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.
