Petit-Village is located on the highest point of the gravel plateau in the heart of the Pomerol appellation, at the outskirts of the hamlet of Catusseau. The 11 hectares vineyard is in a single triangular-shaped plot.The soil is composed of a deep layer of gravel on clay-limestone subsoil. The winery buildings and outbuildings are situated around a courtyard, forming a sort of small "village", to which Petit- Village owes its name.Work in the vineyard and cellar is done with the greatest of care, operations such as picking, fermentation, and ageing in oak barrels are carried out in the finest Pomerol tradition. Petit-Village is powerful, yet soft and wellbalanced. It has all the incomparable richness and finesse of the greatest wines of Pomerol

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Yields are down this year at Petit Village. They had a little coulure and battled a serious attack of mildew. Later, winds from the north dehydrated some fruit. In the end, they came in at 35 hectoliters per hectare. A blend of 72% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Petit Village springs from the glass with bold expressions of warm plums, Black Forest cake, black raspberries and kirsch plus hints of rose petals, chocolate box and spearmint. The palate is full and generously fruited with a firm frame of rounded tannins that have just a bit of chew, finishing with soft-spoken freshness and fragrance.
