Winemaker Notes

The year 2000 was without any doubt the last year to have been selected as "Vintage of the century", and this 2000 proves all expectations. A blend of Merlot (65%), Cabernet Sauvignon (32%) and Cabernet France (3%) aged in French oak for 12 months - 40% new barrels. The Merlot is perfectly ripe, concentrated, and sometimes candied. The habernets, harvested one week later, had a crispy skin, firm, dense but fine and silky tannins. The sugar/acid balance is ideal and the colours are impressive.

Chateau Petit Bocq, St. Estephe, Bordeaux, France
Petit Bocq came into existence in 1972 and owes its name to the vineyard plot located in the locality called Bocq and also to its small size of slightly less than two hectares of old Merlot vinestocks nestling in the hamlet of Marbuzet. Ther is no chateau: only a sort of small shed, or as can sometimes be heard from the St. Emilion side, "a garage wine". Excluded from the classifications at that time for these reasons, its wines nevertheless, attracted a great deal of attention.

Petit Bocq has since grown bigger and has moved. The domaine is now of reasonable size. With the 2002 vintage, it will be a vineyard slightly larger than 14 hectares, the harvest from which will fill ultramodern vats and casks currently accommodated in the "real chateau" in the famous village of Pez.

the wines of Petit Bocq have always given prefernce to the Merlot Noire. In 1993 it accounts for 95% of the final blending. With the acquisition of new plots of land, we are helping Cabernet Sauvignon to take revenge. However, the Merlot will always be the priority. It gives color, suppleness and delicacy to the wines.
