The wines of Petit-Village possess the richness and incomparable finesse of great Pomerol. The robe is a beautiful deep red, the nose aromatic and intense. In the mouth, the tannins are supple, fleshy and powerful. The structure is balanced and silky.

Wine SpectatorMilk chocolate and blackberry aromas follow through to a full body, with very soft tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is so delicious now, but has a balance of fruit and tannins. One of the best from this estate in some time. Best after 2014.

Wine EnthusiastFruity and smoky, this wine succeeds on its charm, with soft tannins, acidity and superripe fruit. With its (for Pomerol) high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine certainly has structure, but maybe misses on richness.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Petit Village is a superficial, straightforward, fruit-driven effort displaying notes of roasted herbs, espresso, cherries, and hints of strawberries as well as licorice. Medium-bodied with light tannin and a straightforward finish, it should be consumed over the next 10-15 years.
