Quite an earthy, solid wine with plenty of power and concentration but a bit less charm than many of the 2014 Pomerols. The tannins on the finish are a bit chewy, but they should harmonize in time and there’s plenty of fruit in there.
The 2014 Petit-Village is bold, racy and voluptuous, all of which add to its considerable near- and medium-term appeal. Lavender, herbs, menthol and leather run through a core of sumptuous dark fruit. Broad, ample and inviting, the 2014 has so much to recommend it. This is a very pretty wine by any measure. The blend is 72% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)
Barrel Sample. The Cabernet Franc in the blend makes this wine a success, offering an intense character that brings out blackberry fruit notes and delicate acidity. This wine is solid without being too firm. (RV)
A step back from the more exuberant, sexy 2015, the 2014 Château Petit-Village is still a beauty, offering lots of cherry and currant fruits, ground herbs, and hints of new leather. It’s medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, and elegant on the palate, with impressive purity of fruit and freshness. The blend is 72% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, and it’s a pretty, classic, charming beauty to drink over the coming 10-15 years.
Solidly built, with a warm ganache frame around a core of steeped plum and blackberry fruit. The toasty edge wins out on the finish for now, but the fruit is there. This should meld a bit more in the cellar. (JM)
