Tasting Notes
Wine Spectator: Offers a juicy feel, with lots of singed anise and fruitcake notes out in front of the dark plum and blackberry fruit. Delivers ample spice through the finish. Flirts with the exotic side, but there’s focus and cut here. 91 - 94 Points
Ratings
Wine Advocate: The 2015 Petit Village is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the first wine to be made by Diana Garcia-Berrouet (the daughter-in-law of Jean-Claude for those that recognize the appended name). It has a straightforward black cherry and iodine-scented bouquet that needs to muster a little more complexity given the terroir. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, perhaps more filigree than previous vintages. Given the precocity on the Right Bank, I would have liked more depth on the finish, though it is well balanced with ample freshness on the finish. It is a Pomerol estate that just needs to find its "groove." 90 - 91 Points
Awards
James Suckling: Shows wonderful balance and finesse with salt, mineral and dark fruit. Hints of walnut too. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a bright finish. Wow. Best ever. 95 - 96 Points
Other Notes
Château Petit-Village produces classic lush Pomerol wines that sell for a fraction of the prices that are commanded by some of its more fashionable neighbours. Since 1989 it has been owned by AXA and is run by Jean-Michel Cazes and oenologist Daniel Llose. AXA also owns Château Pichon-Longueville Baron, Château Cantenac Brown and Château Suduiraut.
