    (Château Petit Village (Pomerol)) Dense, slightly meaty style of fruit, certainly expressive and there is some immediate appeal. The palate has the same weight found in the rest of the appellation, with a fleshy layer of fruit hiding the tannins perhaps a little more readily than with Clinet or La Conseillante. Good substance, although less body to it than the other wines, with a softer acidity than some as well. There is certainly grip here, and a nice harmony on the palate, even if overall it is rather masculine and needs a lot of time. Another wine that is a little more convincing than the rather hot and bold barrel sample. The alcohol is declared at 14.5% though.

    (Chateau Petit Village Pomerol) Merlot 75%, Cabernet Franc 17%, Cabernet Franc 8%. A rather reserved style of fruit nose here, not very expressive, but dark and spicy when it shows. Rather hot in character on the palate, bold with lots of substance, but also some heat and spice. A palate very influenced by alcohol here. This doesn't appeal to me.
