Description

    Chateau Petrus 1992
    Pomerol
    bsl, sos
    Magnum (1)
    "The 1992 Petrus is clearly one of the two candidates for the 'wine of the vintage.' The normal production of 4,500 cases was severely reduced to only 2,600 cases, resulting in an atypically concentrated, powerful, rich wine with a dark, saturated ruby/purple color, a tight but promising nose of sweet black-cherry fruit, vanillin, caramel, and herb-tinged mocha notes. Concentrated and powerful, with superb density of fruit and richness, as well as wonderful sweetness to its tannin, this is a brilliant effort for the vintage. The wine requires 3-5 years of cellaring and should keep for 15-20+." (90pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #96, Dec 1994)
