Château Petit Village, 2018

At 14.3% alcohol with fine balancing acidity, this barrel sample has lovely aromatic, elegant, fresh red fruit aspects. It has a juicy, rounded mid-palate with depth, leading to a clean and pure, bright, fruit driven finish. “We have quite tannic wines, already so why oak them?” Ageing 15 months in just 40% new oak.

Score: 93-95
