2014 Petit-Village, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1201317 93 points James Suckling

 Quite an earthy, solid wine with plenty of power and concentration but a bit less charm than many of the 2014 Pomerols. The tannins on the finish are a bit chewy, but they should harmonize in time and there’s plenty of fruit in there.  (2/2017)

92 points Vinous

 The 2014 Petit-Village is bold, racy and voluptuous, all of which add to its considerable near- and medium-term appeal. Lavender, herbs, menthol and leather run through a core of sumptuous dark fruit. Broad, ample and inviting, the 2014 has so much to recommend it. This is a very pretty wine by any measure. The blend is 72% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)  (2/2017)

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Barrel Sample. The Cabernet Franc in the blend makes this wine a success, offering an intense character that brings out blackberry fruit notes and delicate acidity. This wine is solid without being too firm. (RV)  (4/2015)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Solidly built, with a warm ganache frame around a core of steeped plum and blackberry fruit. The toasty edge wins out on the finish for now, but the fruit is there. This should meld a bit more in the cellar. (JM)  (3/2017)

Classic Pomerol with plums, cocoa, cherry and tobacco aromatics. Quite brambly on the palate, along with lighter notes of cherries, medium body, and firmly structured by the tannins and its juicy acidity.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
