2001 Petit Village, Pomerol (1.5L) 6-pack in OWC

SKU #1348116 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Somewhat formulaic, this 2001 Pomerol exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, plenty of new oak, and ripe fruit, but it appears to lack soul. Medium-bodied, with moderate tannin, a sweet palate, but little complexity, perhaps more will emerge with additional bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2013. (RP)  (6/2004)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Ruby-red. Enticing, expressive nose combines redcurrant, plum, tobacco, chocolate and sexy oak. Supple, nicely concentrated and fresh, with dark cherry and floral notes. Finishes with slightly dry but fairly light tannins. (ST)  (6/2004)

Wine Spectator

 This is a very good Pomerol, with chocolate, berry and light cedar aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with a good core of ripe tannins and a medium finish. Very good indeed. Best after 2007. (JS)  (3/2004)

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.
