2019 Château Petit Bocq  (St. Estèphe) 90

Sweet and juicy, the ripe fruits, soft, round tannins, earth tobacco and oak all work together well here. Give it a few years in the cellar and it should fill out quite nicely. 89-91 Pts

2018 Château Petit Bocq  (St. Estèphe) 92

With a peppery accent to the red fruited nose, the wine is medium/full-bodied, round, and with a gorgeous sweetness to the red fruits, hints of herbs, tobacco leaf, cigar box and cedar in the finish. Give it 3-5 years in the cellar and enjoy it over the following 15 or more years with ease. 92 Points

Deep in color, this wine is equally dark in fruit. With round textures, a medium/full-body, there is espresso, black cherry, licorice and herbs from start to finish. 90-92 Pts

2017 Château Petit Bocq  (St. Estèphe) 86

Light in color and in fruit, this early drinking, medium-bodied wine is on the bright, red fruit side. There are soft tannins along with crisp cherry and cranberry notes in the finish. 86 Points

2016 Château Petit Bocq  (St. Estèphe) 90

Dark red fruits are polished and blessed with length and voluptuous texture; this wine woos you with a finish of even deeper, earthier berries. A few years in the cellar will make this all the better -- a smart value play from St. Estephe. 90 Points

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. 87 Points

Le Petit Bocq Situated on gravel based soils not far from Calon Segur, this blend of 58% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and the remainder Cabernet Franc is a powerful Cru Bourgeois that offers a chewy bite of black fruit, cassis and tannins. 88-90 Pts

2008 Château Petit Bocq  (St. Estèphe) 87

Better on the earthy, smoky, spicy, red berry and tobacco nose, than on the slightly firm, rustic, cherry palate, this is fully developed and should be drunk up over the next few years. 87 Points

2006 Château Petit Bocq  (St. Estèphe) 85

Fully mature, medium-bodied and rustic in nature, the wine is more interesting on the tobacco, spice, wet earth, smoke and bright red berry nose than on the austere, earthy, cedar filled palate. 85 Points

2005 Château Petit Bocq  (St. Estèphe) 87

Probably drinking at its peak now. The nose, with its truffle, tobacco, blackberry and earthy scents are a little more interesting than the medium bodied, slightly rustic, finish. 87 Points
