Tasting Notes Le Petit Cheval 2017

92-93

Some fresh roses and dark berries with plums and cherries, too. Earthy. Medium body and a flavorful finish. Very tight and refined.

The 2017 Petit Cheval is delicate, floral, and also a touch austere, but classically so. There is good definition to the red cherry, plum, mint and lavender flavors. The Petit Cheval is not a wine to drink young by any means, as it needs at least few years to come into its own. The blend is 52% Merlot and 48% Cabernet Franc. Time in the glass brings out a bit more pliancy in the fruit, but the 2017 Petit Cheval is really a wine built on energy.

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.

Composed of 52% Merlot and 48% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Le Petit Cheval comes strutting out of the glass with gregarious notions of red currant jelly, black raspberries, blackberries and dark chocolate with hints of lavender, allspice, fertile loam and potpourri. Medium-bodied and firmly textured with chewy tannins and seamless freshness, it has plenty of spice and earth layers and a long, mineral-tinged finish. 4,500 bottles are to be produced.
