2004 Petrus:

The 100 Point Scoring System (from www.robertparker.com):.
96-100: A remarkable wine of extensive and intricate character showing all the features anticipated of a timeless a glass of wine of its variety. White wines of this caliber deserve an unique effort to find, eat and buy.
90 – 95: An impressive red wine of exceptional complexity and personality. In short, these are great glass of wines.
80 – 89: A hardly above average to excellent wine presenting numerous degrees of skill and flavor in addition to personality without any noticeable defects.
70 – 79: An ordinary white wine with little distinction other than that it is peacefully made. Basically, an uncomplicated, harmless red wine.
60 – 69: A below-average red wine having obvious shortages, such as too much acidity and/or tannin, a lack of flavor or possibly dirty aromas or tastes.
50 – 59: A wine regarded to be undesirable.

Of all, it is one of the finest glass of wines coming out of Bordeaux with a fantastic track record to prove its capability to produce impressive a glass of wine. It has created greater than 10 glass of wines that obtained an excellent rating from Robert Parker and is the favored wine of presidents, kings, and billionaires.
I visited Petrus twice and the winery is simple and fairly tiny. It is not one of those incredible Chateaux that you see in Bordeaux left financial institution yet it has a lengthy background.
It was for a long time thought about to be an excellent estate however it was not that renowned at first. The region of Pomerol on the right bank is a lot more rural and the high quality of its terroir was forgotten.
Petrus started to appear after the 1945 vintage. This was additionally the moment when the Moueix household started to offer their red wines. They made the vineyard well-known in Europe and the United States and also took control of control of the estate in the center of the 20th century.
The winery is 11.4 hectares in size– way smaller sized than the vineyards of the initial growths in the Medoc. Lafite for example has greater than 100 hectares of wineries. It lies on a little plateau– not a high winery but only a slightly elevated location.
The dirt is made up of clay and it is various from most other surrounding wineries.
Christian Moueix presented eco-friendly harvesting to the estate to decrease the crop degree and Petrus is only based on 100 % Merlot considering that 2010, also though they made use of to have a bit of Cabernet Franc on the estate.
They do not create a second red wine so all of the base glass of wines that do not please their requirements are liquidated as anonymous Pomerol or Bordeaux rouge.
High quality is just one factor when it pertains to the price though. I mean you can discover white wines that receive great scores and are a lot cheaper.
The famous critic Robert Parker was often a little bit essential of the estate and in his Bordeaux publication he wrote that Pomerols re on the same degree or also better. However Petrus stands for more than the most effective Pomerol can ever offer- it is more like a Myth than a red wine.
That is definitely real I bear in mind well the special moments when I was a young sommelier, and someone got a container of Petrus. Drawing that cork was the visitor and an honor that acquired it was our preferred guest of the night …
The wine manufacturing is likewise relatively minimal contrasted to Latour, Lafite, Margaux, and Co. and as demand is high and supply is low the prices shoot up into the air …
The cost is however insane and I do not think that there is any kind of connection between price and high quality when it involves these glass of wines. I likewise have to claim: The Haut Brion that remained in 2nd location in the study would have been a lot more affordable …
The 2004 Haut Brion set you back around 700 Dollars a bottle which now seems like a deal … It is crazy just how flexible our relationship to money is.
The white wine that I uncovered is from the 2004 vintage which is a solid year but not a terrific one. This is one of the factors that the white wine was cheaper … still extremely costly however more economical.
Robert Parker wrote this about the wine:.
The dark plum/ruby-tinged 2004 Petrus has high acidity as well as large amounts of black currants and wonderful cherries intermixed with tips of cola, planet, and truffles. This in reverse, structured, muscular Pomerol needs a decade of cellaring, however it has the possible to be the longest-lived wine of the vintage, lasting 30-40 years.
