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. Best after 2008. 2,000 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Petrus 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Small and seductive It's a tiny region, and it has no classification system. But the wines produced from Pomerol can be sensuous and life-changing. Here lies Chateau Pйtrus, one of the most expensive and sought-after wines of the world – commanding prices higher than the first-growth chateaux of the Mйdoc. The area is all vines, with no real town center, just roads connecting the lands and small, farmhouse style chateaux. Notable Facts Soils in the area are primarily gravel based, intermittent with a clay subsoil which is a factor in the rich flavors of the wines. Like its right bank neighbors, Pomerol sticks mainly to Merlot, with at least 2/3 of the land under vine growing the varietal. Cabernet Franc makes up most of the remainder, with some Cabernet Sauvignon and a spot or two of Malbec. Vines are old and yields are extremely low – add those factors to the soil, and it's a recipe for an elegant, distinctive wine, with typical descriptors of ripe fruit, rich, plump, smooth tannins, intense aroma and supple tannins. It can be a vintage-dependent wine, so with a good vintage, expect melt-in-your-mouth wine.
