Description:

Chateau Petrus 1964
Pomerol, Cru Exceptionnel
u: bottom neck, bin soil

"Deep, dark ruby/garnet-colored, with a hint of orange and rust at the edge, the 1964 Petrus offers a huge, smoky, roasted bouquet of jammy fruit, coffee, and mocha. This huge, massively-endowed wine is packed with alcohol, glycerin, and high tannin. There is stupendous extraction of fruit and amazing length. The only criticism is that it is perhaps too big and robust for its own good. Lucky owners of well-stored bottles are advised to cellar it for a few more years. As they say, it's a tough job, but someone's got to do it! Last tasted 11/95" R. Parker, 97 pts. 01/98
