Chateau Petit-Village 2016

Bordeaux - Pomerol - Red Chateau Petit-Village Chateau Petit-Village 2016 1199/16
  • Parker : 90-92
  • J. Robinson : 17

A tender Pomerol, with elegant tannins

After a dry and hot summer, and three months without rain, the drought ended on September 14th. Rain allowed the final phase of maturity to take place. Harvest went by smoothly, with the grapes reaching maturity without any issues. Chateau Petit-Village 2016 is a blend of 77% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 9% Cabernet SauvignonCabernet Sauvignon is responsible for giving the wine a solid structure. 

Chateau Petit-Village 2016 has a very dark purple color, similar to ink. The nose is impressive with an incomparable aromatic complexity. The black fruits are rich and fresh. Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are used to balance the richness of the Merlot. The palate is invigorating with a great use of acidity. The tannins are slenderelegant and powerful. They also add to the balance and harmony of the wine. Chateau Petit-Village is easy to drink and capable of aging for many years

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Petit Village is the second vintage made by Diana Berrouet-Garcia. A blend of 77% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon that matured in 60% new oak, it has a fragrant, quite citrus-scented bouquet with hints of orange blossom and blood orange tincturing the dark cherry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a solid and structured entry. There is a little compactness to this Petit Village at the moment with that Cabernet Sauvignon imparting a slight graphite edge on the finish. This is a fine Pomerol, although I still maintain that this is not reaching its full potential given the terroir.
