2016 Petit Village 75CL
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.
Château Petit-Village is a great wine that is faithful to its exceptional terroir. Today, the extensive restructuring of the vineyard and renovation of the cellars serve to optimize the potential given by the use of traditional vineyard working techniques.
Guided by a strong sense of values and respect for the land in its most apt expression, the wines of Château Petit-Village are supple, powerful, and harmonious; possessing the richness and incomparable finesse of a great Pomerol.
