Tasting Notes Le Petit Cheval 2006

89

Tasted blind at Southwold '06 Bordeaux tasting. The Le Petit Cheval '06 is well defined on the nose: crushed stones, brambly black fruits, boysenberry, truffle and a touch of bay leaf. The palate is medium-bodied, spicy black fruits on the entry, a dash of pepper, chewy tannins with a grippy, smoky finish. Maybe this is too serious for its own good? It needs to lighten up a little! Tasted January 2010.

One of the stronger second wines I have tasted from manager/winemaker, Pierre Lurton, the 2006 Le Petit Cheval exhibits a dark ruby hue along with sweet red and black fruit notes intermixed with underbrush, forest floor, and licorice characteristics. This is a seductive second wine that cascades over the palate with no hard edges. Enjoy it over the next 6-7 years.
