2004 Pétrus, Pomerol

SKU #1032372 97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Is a classic. Vintage 2004 has given beautifully ripe Merlot, perfectly poised, but also showing the dryness and power. It is hugely intense, structured, bringing in blackberry flavors, fresh acidity and complex wood, perfumed and rich, concentrated. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2007)

95 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark By far the most concentrated of the '04 Pomerols, Pétrus carries its extract with opulence and grace. It feels intense while tasting vibrant, the buoyancy of its floral red fruit a clear match for the resonant tannins. There's nothing showy about it; in fact, the wine closes off with air. Pétrus requires patience and may not begin to show itself completely until it closes in on 20 years. Inner quote mark (10/2007)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The dark plum/ruby-tinged 2004 Petrus possesses high acidity as well as copious amounts of sweet cherries and black currants intermixed with hints of cola, earth, and truffles. Deep, medium-bodied, concentrated, ripe flavors are excruciatingly firm and tannic. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2007)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep medium red. Subtly complex aromas of mulberry, red cherry, toffee, caramel, iron and flowers. A bit narrow on entry, then expands in the middle palate without any loss of focus. A very firmly built, vibrant and classy 2004 with a tight mineral core and ineffable spice character. This is by far the most backward 2004 in the Moueix portfolio. Finishes with terrific aromatic persistence and subtlety. This will surely evolve in the direction of toffee and truffle and may ultimately merit an even higher rating. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (6/2007)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers crushed berries, with chocolate and light vanilla. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit, silky tannins and a caressing texture. Very harmonious and pretty, with a balanced palate. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2007)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Remarkably red-fruited still on the nose with just a little bit of exotic spice and sweetness: the epitome of luxury and decadence yet it also smells so youthful and vibrant. Firm and dry on the palate, less yielding than I expected from the aroma. Much more tertiary character - undergrowth. Chewy finish but it's warm and satisfying and still has a way to go. (JH) 18/20 points Inner quote mark (3/2014)
