The 2017 Le Petit Cheval is a small production this year, representing around 8% of the total, from two parcels including one of young sélection massale Cabernet Franc and Merlot on sandy soil. It has a taut, linear bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, briary and light pressed flower aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with cedar and tobacco-tinged black fruit, quite Left Bank in style, which is no surprise given the high percentage of Cabernet Franc that lends a subtle dried blood note on my second reading of this wine towards the end of my visit. I like the structure on the finish, coupled with the fruit that should make this approachable after one or two years.
