A very strong effort from Petit Village, the 2010 is the finest effort in years. Dark plum with hints of mocha, caramel, sweet currants and cherries, this opulent, savory, and explosive full-bodied wine already is accessible and evolved. Anticipated maturity: now- 2025. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

Tasted at Pichon Baron. A blend of 18% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and the remainder Merlot, this has a relatively understated nose with dark cherries, a touch of truffle and blackberry leaf. The palate is full-bodied with grippy tannins, a voluminous Petit-Village, quite assertive, perhaps just a little aggressive on the tannic finish at the moment. Masculine and bold, I did not warm to this PV as much as I anticipated. Let’s see after bottling. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Crushed plum, raspberry and cassis flavors glide along silky, refined tannins, with a suave finish that has a polished edge. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

This has a lot more breadth than most of the Derenoncourt wines I have just been tasting. Lightly minty. Succulent and pleasing. Really pretty good with great balance. I look forward to tasting this blind under UGC auspices. Relatively subtle. Though still relatively tough on the end. Tasted blind 6 Apr: Blueish crimson. Not that intense a colour. Limits of ripeness and a suggestion of black cherries on the nose. Very sweet and just a little bit lacking in freshness and life. Big and bold but not that refreshing or intriguing. Astringent finish. Tasted at Pichon Longueville 7 Apr: ‘As part of our efforts to spruce things up here we re-identified Cabernet Sauvignon as Cabernet Franc.’ Very dense and rich. Sweet but a bit austere on the end. Not much palate breadth. jancisrobinson.com

This Petit Village is less impressive than the 2009 which was one of their best vintages in the past 10 years. The 2010 exhibits inviting flavours of fibrant blackberries and plums with rich, generous rounded tannins. Fairly long finish. This is a wine that will have a wide drinking window given its ripe, accessible flavours. Petit Village is always a good value Pomerol sold for under 30 Euros. asianpalate.com

Tis is a big boy - bitter with black fruit and cocoa. Concentrated and tannic but there is real promise in the finish which is all dark chocolate and plums and with good lift at the end.
