Winemakers Note

Château Petit-Village is located on the high part of the magnificent Pomerol plateau at an altitude of between 35 and 38 metres, on gravel soils in the heart of the appellation. An ideal geographical situation to produce very great wines faithful to this exceptional terroir. The past few years have seen major renovations and changes at Château Petit-Village. Significant replanting of the vineyard had occurred, with the long term aim of maximising quality. These changes have begun to bear fruit. From harvesting by hand to ageing in barrels, each step is guided by respect for the accurate expression of the terroir. The wines of Château Petit-Village are fresh and balanced with remarkable intensity of fruit and all the incomparable richness and finesse of the greatest wines of Pomerol. Key Points - Change of ownership in 2020, the Moulin family bought the estate in June - The 2020 is the first vintage of the Moulin family - Beginning of the conversion of the vineyard to organic farming in 2020 - Château Petit Village is getting a makeover in 2020 with a new label and now the bottles are waxed Soil Deep Gravel and Clay Size 10,5 hectares Average Age of Vines 35 ans Harvest Precise plot and intraplot selection. Harvest separated from all co-planted and diseased vines Placed in cold chambers to cool down the crop to 6°C.

Cold pre-fermentation maceration followed by alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation in new barrels for the best Merlot plots. Aging 50 % New Oak 6 Different Coopers Small selection aged in amphora 16 months Tasting "The 2020 vintage marks a new era, full of ambitions, with the arrival of the Moulin Family. A very precise selection in our historical clay plots gives a very distinctive and atypical blend with the highest percentage of Cabernet in the history of the estate. The wine has a very expressive and intense nose with a full body structure and smooth, elegant tannins. The fresh and harmonious finish reveals the best characteristics from our clay terroir." Diana Berrouet Garcia, Directrice Générale Adjointe
