"Fleshy and enticing, offering creamy layers of crushed fig and plum laced with singed mesquite and incense notes. Delivers a flattering feel through the finish, with a linzer torte edge holding sway and embedded acidity providing propulsion. Drink now through 2025." (WS)

"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." (WA)

"(75% merlot, 18% cabernet franc and 7% cabernet sauvignon; 70% new oak; 14.5% alcohol) Good, bright ruby-red. Complex aromas of red berries, violet and minerals, plus a whiff of peppery milk chocolate. Very suave and silky on entry, then tight and energetic in the mid-palate, with sweet flavors similar to the aromas. Ripe and smooth on the long, peppery aftertaste. There's more cabernet franc this year in the blend, technical director Jean-Luc Martignon told me, because a well-situated parcel that survived the frost of 1956 has turned out to be cabernet franc—and not cabernet sauvignon, as they had always believed! This looks to be one of the best vintages for Petit Village in years. Stephane Derenoncourt also consults here." (IWC)

"93-95 With its dark concentration of flavors, this is hugely dense, very ripe and juicy. There is a fruit salad of rich berries here, powerful, finished with some tough, dry tannins. — R.V. (6/25/2011)" (WE)

"Petit Village Produced from 73% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Cabernet Franc, this medium bodied, soft textured Pomerol offers light cherry, plum, coca powder and licorice. 89-91 Pts 90 points - Tasted Apr 21, 2011" (JL)

"Spicy nose with nutmeg, cedar and sweet tobacco. Blueberries and some milk chocolate. Pure dark fruit on the palate with a wonderful texture and quite deep structure. Ripe polished tannins and a wonderfully focused long finish. Best ever from here. Drink from 2018." (JS)
