Château Petit-Village

Bordeaux, bordeaux France

Château Petit-Village is situated in the heart of the Pomerol appellation, next door to Vieux Château Certan, and has benefited from renovation and improvement over the last two decades. Lower yields in the vineyards, a new barrel cellar and new fermentation vats have all been implemented by Daniel Llose and consultants Stéphane Derenoncourt and Marielle Cazeaux, who oversee the work in the vineyard and the winery.

The 11 hectares of vines sit at the highest point of Pomerol, on very deep gravel soils. These typically have better drainage than clay-based soils and are therefore warmer than much of Pomerol, which helps vine balance, especially in wetter, cooler years. The Château Petit-Village Pomerol is a blend of 72% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Cabernet Franc. The wine is aged in barrels, of which 65% are new and 35% are one year old, for 14 months.

'Le Jardin de Petit-Village' is the second wine of Château Petit-Village and is sourced from a selection of younger Merlot vines and parcels that deliver softer, slightly less concentrated fruit. It is made by the same winemaking team, with the same scrupulous care, as Château Petit-Village itself. It is 100% Merlot and aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which are one year old and 50% of which are two years old.
