    Petrus 1994
    Pomerol, cru exceptionnel
    Slightly bin-soiled labels. Levels into neck
    Tasting note: Opaque purple/black in colour, with a sweet vanilla, pain grillee, jammy cherry and cassis-scented nose, this full-bodied, densely packed wine reveals layers of flavor, and an inner-core of sweetness with huge quantities of glycerin and depth. A tannic, classic style of Petrus, with immense body, great purity, and a backward finish, this wine requires a decade of cellaring. Robert Parker; Wine Advocate 109 (February 1997)
