    A very good Pomerol that offers loads of fruit including red cherries, plums and chocolate. Mouthfilling, sturdy and rich, yet wonderfully fresh and focused.

    An attractive, supple, dark plum/garnet/purple-tinged Pomerol, the 2008 exhibits notes of licorice, olives, mocha and jammy black and red fruits. It is an elegant, medium-bodied, silky red to consume over the next 6-8 years. Drink: 2011 - 2019

    While this estate’s wines never seem to be as good as one hopes (I have still have memories of the 1982 dancing across my palate), the 2008 has turned out reasonably well. It possesses sweet herb and coffee-infused black cherry, caramel, and cola-like fruit, medium body, a supple texture, and a very good finish. Enjoy this consumer-friendly Pomerol over the next 10-12 years. Drink: 2009 - 2021

    Very deep blackish crimson. Meaty/yeast extract. Very sweet. Rich. Lively. Not the sweetest Pomerol 2008 but very dense. Energetic and lively. Big improvement on some past vintages. Very positive and structured but with good flesh and concentration. Long. Cool, fresh, succulent, limpid and not forced. Very slightly rustic but lots of personality - a success!

    Score: 88-91

    Blackberry and black licorice aromas follow through to a full body. Slightly hollow midpalate, but with polished tannins and a long finish. Should develop well.

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

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.
