Tasting Notes

Robert Parker, 1998, Score: 87

Intense aromas of smoky new oak, herbs, and black fruits are immediately enthralling. In the mouth, the wine is medium bodied and moderately concentrated, with soft tannins and perhaps more structure than other recent vintages of Petit-Village. Anticipated maturity: Now-2000. Last tasted, 3/90.

Producer

Château Petit Village

Château Petit Village is reminiscent of a thoroughbred horse. Not only does it have excellent pedigree finely bordering Vieux Château Certan, Certan de May and La Conseillante, but it has been finely groomed by skillful hands over the years - first by Bruno Prats, the dynamic former owner of Cos d'Estournel, followed by AXA Millésimes with Jean-Michel Cazes (of Lynch Bages) and then with the ever-so efficient Christian Seely who remains at the helm today.

Region

Pomerol, Red Bordeaux

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
