The 1970 Petrus Pomerol is rich black fruits with a great earthy complexity. A wine that is quite juicy with beautiful clarity and lift. Finishes with substantial tannins and wonderful flavors of black earth and spices.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 99
"... it has now hit full stride. It is a profound Petrus, and certainly one of the great Petrus’ of the last half century. The wine has a huge nose of cedar, caramel, vanilla, tobacco, fruitcake, and licorice-infused black cherry jam. It is unctuously textured and very full-bodied, with extraordinary sweetness and glycerin, and a layered, viscous finish."
