2020 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 94

Dark in color, the wine quickly focuses on its floral, plum, spice, licorice and earthy character. The wine is medium-bodied, silky and fresh with a sensuous, supple textured, sexy finish. This is the best vintage of Petit Village I have tasted in ages. The wine is a blend of 60% Merlot, 32 Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is the first vintage to show off its new, stylish label and wax capsule. 93-95 Pts

2018 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 93

Better in the bottle than in barrel, the wine now shows more of a floral character. Fresh, soft and silky, with a luscious texture and layers of sweet, ripe, vibrant, elegant fruits. The finish, with its minty-fresh wave of cherries really clings to your palate. This is the finest vintage of Petit Village I recall tasting. The wine blends 72% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Franc. Give it 4-5 years of age and it will be a much better wine. 93 Points

Wild cherries, cocoa and licorice with wet, earthy nuances come to the surface with ease. Soft, round, and silky in the finish, the blend of 72% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Franc leaves with a bright, fresh, spicy red berry, thyme and floral endnote. Give it 4-5 years of age and it will be a much better wine. 91-93 Pts

2015 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 92

Black truffle aromas are starting to come out, along with bitter chocolate and black cherries. Medium bodied, soft and polished, the wine is almost ready to drink, perhaps just a few years in the cellar is all you need to add even more softness to the texture. 92 Points

Perhaps the best vintage of Petit Village I've ever tasted! This wine offers real density for the first time. There is a richness and a fleshiness to the sweet, corpulent, ripe, black cherries and cocoa that make it impossible not to like. The wine was made from a blend of 71% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon. 91-93 Pts

From 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine represents 50% of the crop.

2009 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 89

A bit meaty and firm for a Pomerol, the wine is medium-bodied, bright and fresh with a core of sweet, ripe cherries, earth and herbs and a red plum finish. This classically styled wine is ready to go. 89 Points

2007 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 85

The color shows its age, and then some. The wine is fully mature, medium bodied, with more secondary notes on the nose than fruit. In the finish, the wine shows ripe strawberries with an herbaceous quality in the end note. This requires drinking sooner than later. 85 Points

2006 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 87

Medium-bodied, bright, earthy, fresh and focused more on its secondary notes than the receding plums and cherries. The finish is on the austere, firm side. This is not a wine to hold for development. 87 Points

2005 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 87

Shockingly light for the vintage. There is no reason to buy wines like this for the type of money being charged. The good news is, starting with 2006, Stephen Derenoncourt is in charge of the winemaking so things should start improving rapidly 87 Points

2004 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 87

2001 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 87

Disappointing for the vintage, the wine is light in color and fruit, with a bright, overly fresh, red berry component that is there in the wine from start to finish. On the bright side, the wines being produced here today are much better. I would not be holding this wine for further evolution, as there is not just not enough stuffing to make it more interesting as the years go on. 87 Points

2000 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 87

Fully mature, the crisp, dark cherry, tobacco and earthy aromatics is not enough to take away the rustic tannins that mar this medium bodied wine in the finish. 87 Points

1998 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 90

If you own a bottle, pop a cork as this is the right time to be enjoying the truffle, cocoa and cherry infused wine. Medium bodied, with soft textures, the wine delivers a nice, cherry filled finish. This is not going to make old bones. It's probably best enjoyed over the next 3-5 years. 90 Points

1964 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 89

For its age, the wine still showed good color. The wine offered a surprising amount of heft, earthy, tobacco laden plums and a touch of forest leaf. The fruit was ripe, and still served up a nice sweetness. The wine was not very complex, but it was fun tasting the property before they pulled out all their old-vine Merlots, replacing them with Cabernet Sauvignon. 89 Points

1955 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 87

Spicy, tobacco notes were easy to find. The first few sips offered a lot of pleasure, but with air, the wine slowly faded in the glass. 87 Points

1952 Château Petit Village  (Pomerol) 75

Older is not always better, as is evidenced with this bottle. Bright, tart, red berries, medium bodied and tart in finish, the nose was more interesting than the palate. 75 Points
