2016 Petit-Village, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1299410 96 points James Suckling

 Attractive slate and stony aromas here with a sense of depth and strongly terroir-focused style. Abundant ripe dark fruit with a suave, plush and very deep-set palate. Long, classic, seamless and powerful Pomerol. Try from 2023.  (2/2019)

93 points Decanter

 Huge density and concentration with incredible elegance and life. A really lovely wine, more fruit than flowers, showing great complexity on the finish. It just seems to be holding itself back. 77% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in 60% new oak and 40% one year old oak for 15 months. (JA)  (4/2017)

93 points Vinous

 The 2016 Petit-Village has blossomed into a striking wine. Perfumed, silky and sensual, with notable aromatic lift, the 2016 is absolutely gorgeous. The 2016 has found a measure of finesse and overall harmony during élevage that it did not show from barrel. Pretty floral notes add the closing flourish to this impeccable Pomerol from Petit-Village. Diana Berrouet-Garcia has done a terrific job with the 2016. (AG)  (1/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Petit Village is closed on the nose, opening to earthy aromas and preserved plums, black cherry compote, chocolate and tobacco notes with hints of roses. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm, grainy and lively with earthy/savory layers on the finish. This needs time, but it should reward the patient! Drink 2022-2040. (LPB)  (11/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

 This has a pure core of ripe cherry, raspberry and cassis flavors, with polished structure and light anise and rooibos tea notes gilding the finish. Delivers a flash of mineral at the very end. Not a big boy, but there is no overextraction or overt wood here. Rather, this is built with a deft hand. (JM)  (3/2019)
