The 2021 Château Petit-Village showed brilliantly, and this is certainly a château readers should have on their short list. Beautiful black cherries, raspberries, violets, and floral notes define the bouquet, and it's medium-bodied on the palate, with a charming, supple, seamless mouthfeel that carries ripe, polished tannins, good mid-palate depth, and a great finish. It's unquestionably a gorgeous wine in the making. - Jeb Dunnuck

Perfumed and concentrated on the nose, pure black fruit aromas scented with juniper, blackcurrants and black cherries. Delicate and graceful in terms of flavour profile but with robust and firm tannins that coat the mouth with a wonderful succulence and high acidity. This delivers a soft chewiness where you get a full mouthfeel with lift and vibrancy as well as a cool menthol finish. Sharp and tart strawberries and red cherries but also chalky and wet stone elements. Feels well worked but with energy and sculpting. You get the precision here, feel the cleanness of the fruit and tension in the minerality. It’s beguiling in its approachability on the one hand and it’s structured, knitted core on the other. Muscled but elegant. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

The 2021 Petit-Village was picked in several tries through the parcels, this vintage the first using a density sorter and made 100% by gravity. Harvested between September 29 and October 5 and matured in 50% new oak, it has a very pure bouquet of black cherries and blueberry fruit, crushed violet coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannins, the Cabernet component imparting almost Left Bank traits of pencil lead and cedar. Displaying good depth, and more cohesive than vintages that I was tasting five to six years ago, this Petit-Village demonstrates fine focus. Though it needs a little more fruit on the finish, it should age well in bottle. (13.5% alcohol) - Neal Martin, Vinous Media

Aromas of dark berries, cherries, sweet spices and raw cocoa introduce the 2021 Petit Village, a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, ambitious wine that's layered and velvety, with lively acids and ripe but rather chewy tannins. The fruit of a rigorous selection, I appreciate all the hard work that's going here, but I wonder if a gentler touch with extraction might have delivered something more sensual. It's a blend of 65% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, and it was picked late but very quickly, benefiting from the Moulin family's large picking team. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
