The Story

Château Petit-Village is a jewel set in the highest part of the magnificent terroir of the Pomerol plateau, on deep gravel and clay soils with a ferrous base in the heart of the appellation.

The unique style of Château Petit-Village. It expresses the successful blend of the Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grape varieties. Thanks to the Merlot and the Cabernet Franc, the wine offers aromatic complexity and a long, delicate finish. The Cabernet Sauvignon brings depth and a texture ideally suited for ageing.

Tasting tips: we recommend that you decant the wine before serving to enable it to fully express the range of its aromas. Best enjoyed between 17° and 19° C.

 

The past few years have seen major renovations and changes at Château Petit-Village. Significant replanting of the vineyard had occurred, with the long term aim of maximising quality. Short term this means that quantities of Château Petit-Village are lower than before, production of the Grand Vin coming only from the best old vine production. The winery has been completely rebuilt, with a new vatroom of concrete vats of varying sizes designed exactly for our terroir, that enable us to vinify each small parcel separately.

These changes have begun to bear fruit, with the significant improvement in quality of the wines of the property in recent years already remarked upon by the world’s wine press.

The wines of Château Petit-Village are fresh and balanced with remarkable intensity of fruit and all the incomparable richness and finesse of the greatest wines of Pomerol.

Written Notes

Retasted on 7th September 2016 during Beyerman negociant tasting of several 2015s and some older vintages from 30 properties.

Still as impressive as in April 2016, wonderfully focused wine with great precision, perfect balance, fully ripe black fruit and great depth. Smooth, lingering and sweet finish. Awesome effort.

  • 95p
Deep colour. Black olive, dark berry violet aromas. Fleshy concentrated wine with liquorice, black berry fruits and plentiful chalky tannins. Finishes drying firm but sweet fruit pervades. A substantial wine with an alcohol kick. 92 points
  • 92p
Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black core. Elegant nose with ripe berries, plums and black cherries. Discreet spiciness with hints of vanilla and gingerbread in the background. Firm but ripe tannins, elegant start on the palate, well built with excellent length.

 Izak Litwar / The most important Scandinavian Bordeaux Critic, Pro (Denmark)  tasted  Château Petit-Village 2015  ( Château Petit-Village )

"Last year in summer (2015) technical director Marielle Cazaux left for neighboring La Conseillante and sister-to-low to Olivier Berrouet from Petrus, Diane Beroouet, took over winemaking responsibilities.

Petit Village has for long time been underperforming property. But watch out - 2015 is a stunner and probably the best vintage ever for this property! What a debut vintage for Diane Berrouet!! It showed much more intensity and concentration on nose and palate than usual, excellent structure, depth and complexity, silky fruit and tannin, velvety texture and long fruity finish. Utterly expressive and impressive wine. This wine shouldn't be filtrated at all prior to bottling!"
