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 fermentation vats have all been implemented by Daniel Llose and consultants Stéphane Derenoncourt and Marielle Cazeaux, who oversee the work in the vineyard and winery between them.

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 even in the wetter, cooler years. The Château Petit-Village Pomerol is a blend of 78% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. The wine is aged in barrels, of which 60% are new and 40% are one year old for between 14 and 16 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 wines. 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 15 months in French oak barrels, 25% of which are new and 75% are one year old.
