2012 Château Petit Bocq St. Estèphe Wine Tasting Note

2012 Château Petit Bocq  (St. Estèphe) 87

More interesting on the spicy, peppery, bright, red berry and tobacco leaf nose, than on the slightly rustic, fresh, red fruit palate. Perhaps a few more years will add a bit of softness to the texture here.

When to Drink Chateau Meyney, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Petit Bocq can be enjoyed somewhat early. However, the wine is often better with at least a few years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage.

Chateau Petit Bocq is usually best enjoyed in the first 10-18 years of life. Young vintages can be decanted for 1-2 hours. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment
