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

Tasted in April 2017. 77% Merlot, 14% C. Franc and 9% C. Sauvignon, 14.7% alcohol. It was a beautifully crafted wine, so silky, so velvety, so dramatically fresh and aromatic compared to vintages before 2015. What a turn-around! On quick way to Pomerol's elite wines!!

  • 96p

Only the old vines are used for the Petit-Village which displays a dark purple red with colour with violet hue and almost black core. Rich nose yet elegant character, succulent fruit and perfectly balanced oak spices. On the palate juicy and sweet fruit, ripe but firm tannins and extraordinary length.
