2012 Petit-Village, Pomerol

SKU #1210510 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of dark fruits and flowers follow through to a full body, fine tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Very fine and pretty. One of the best PVs in years. Inner quote mark (2/2015)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Barrel sample. A ripe and fruity wine, this exhibits an well-structured balance of acidity and sweet tannins. It has weight, richness, and a fine fruitiness. Inner quote mark (4/2013)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Lovely wine. Continues the progression. Dark/red berry fruit with a little spice and vanilla. Palate plush and seductive. Fine, long tannins. (JW) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Petit-Village is juicy, exuberant and forward, with striking palate presence, silky tannins and terrific overall balance. Sweet floral and spice notes add nuance on the gracious finish. Readers should expect a decidedly feminine, sensual Pomerol with considerable early and mid-term appeal. There is plenty to like here. The Petit-Village could very well be a sleeper of the vintage. In 2012 the blend is 80% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine spent 20 months in barrel, 80% new. Julien Lavenu is the consulting winemaker. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2016)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is nicely rendered, with dark plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit laced with mulled spice, roasted cedar and black tea notes. Everything melds pleasantly through the plush yet refined finish. Approachable now, but no rush. Inner quote mark (3/2015)

89-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Fully saturated, opaque inky-purple. Aromatic coffee and tobacco nuances complicate pure blackberry and cassis on the nose. Then big and supple, with a peppery bite to the mineral and black fruit flavors. Finishes fresh and vibrant for such a rich wine but with a slightly tough quality on the rising finish. (ID) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Dense ruby/plum/purple, with notes of blackcurrants, black cherries, licorice and a touch of caramel, this wine shows some oak and background earth. It is medium-bodied, with excellent concentration and tastes noticeably improved over recent vintages. It is not terribly complex, but certainly satisfying, plump and well-endowed. Drink it over the next decade. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2015)
