The Le Petit Cheval 2014 is a blend of 52% Merlot and 48% Cabernet Franc, representing 25% of the production. Matured in 50% new oak and 50% one-year old wood, it has a voluminous bouquet with black olive-tinged, raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, hints of vanilla developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is a linearity here, a strictness and poise. It does not have a fantail of concentrated fruit on the finish, but it does linger in the mouth and delivers an unexpected tang of Shezhuan pepper on the after taste. As my score implies, this deuxiŠme vin is equal to many a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Class‚.

Very charming, with bright red currant and damson plum fruit, laced with a lively minerality and a lilting bergamot note. Long and silky, this is almost approachable now, but the acidity is so fine that this could be sneakily long-lived in the cellar. Tasted non-blind.J.M.

More character here. Some intensity, or rather complexity, of perfume. Sweet and laid back and a hint of the Burgundian in the mouth. A touch of mocha. A soft texture and cool minerality. This is very good. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2015.
