2004 Chateau Petrus Reviews

97 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

Cellar Selection

“Is a classic. Vintage 2004 has given beautifully ripe Merlot, perfectly poised, but also showing the dryness and power. It is hugely intense, structured, bringing in blackberry flavors, fresh acidity, and complex wood, perfumed and rich, concentrated.”

95 Pointz Wine & Spirits

“By far the most concentrated of the '04 Pomerols, Pétrus carries its extract with opulence and grace. It feels intense while tasting vibrant, the buoyancy of its floral red fruit a clear match for the resonant tannins. There's nothing showy about it; in fact, the wine closes off with air. Pétrus requires patience and may not begin to show itself completely until it closes in on 20 years.”

93 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“The dark plum/ruby-tinged 2004 Petrus possesses high acidity as well as copious amounts of sweet cherries and black currants intermixed with hints of cola, earth, and truffles. Deep, medium-bodied, concentrated, ripe flavors are excruciatingly firm and tannic.”

93 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine Cellar

“Deep medium red. Subtly complex aromas of mulberry, red cherry, toffee, caramel, iron and flowers. A bit narrow on entry, then expands in the middle palate without any loss of focus. A very firmly built, vibrant, and classy 2004 with a tight mineral core and ineffable spice character. This is by far the most backward 2004 in the Moueix portfolio. Finishes with terrific aromatic persistence and subtlety. This will surely evolve in the direction of toffee and truffle and may ultimately merit an even higher rating.”

93 Pointz Wine Spectator

“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.”

18/20 Poinz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine

“Remarkably red-fruited still on the nose with just a little bit of exotic spice and sweetness: the epitome of luxury and decadence yet it also smells so youthful and vibrant. Firm and dry on the palate, less yielding than I expected from the aroma. Much more tertiary character - undergrowth. Chewy finish but it's warm and satisfying and still has a way to go.”
