Powerful yet elegant wine with substance, a certain tension and great finesse. The colour is almost black, the bouquet boasts crisp, refined fruit, followed by immense length and that freshness that is so characteristic of the terroir of Château Petit-Village.

Located in Pomerol, Château Petit Village has been owned by AXA Millesimes since 1989, a company that also owns Château Pichon-Longueville Baron, Château Cantenac Brown and Château Suduiraut. Since the 1990s, the vineyard has been significantly replanted which means that lower quantities of Petit-Village are being produced for the time being. The winery has also been completely rebuilt, with a new vat room filled with varying sizes of concrete vats designed to vinify each small parcel separately. The wines produced are rich and voluptuous with a lot of toasty and smoky characters.
The 10.5 hectares of vineyard are planted with 75% Merlot, 18 % Cabernet Franc and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes are vinified plot-by-plot and the wine is matured for about 15 months in oak barrels, of which 70% are new.
