Even within the highly approachable Pomerol category, the excellent Château Petit-Village, with its very high percentage of Merlot, is one of the easiest to enjoy in its youth. Fastidious winemaking emphasizes fat, round black currant and cherry flavors seasoned with the toasted character of new oak. The wine has the Merlot "juiciness," medium acidity and smooth, opulent texture that make it ultimately (and almost immediately) drinkable. A voluptuous, approachable wine, Château Petit-Village is not always long-lived but makes an extremely pleasurable and suitable dinner companion. Its usual period of maturity is 5-15 years following the vintage.
The early history of Petit-Village is sparse. The area was already under vines by the time the geographical engineer Belleyme drew up his maps of the area in the second half of the 18th century. It was owned after the French Revolution, if not then, by a family called Dufresnes, from whom it passed to a family called de Seguin, who were for a time also involved with Clos-Fourtet. By 1868, the first year for which we have specific records, the Seguin estate was rated fifth in the commune and produced 20-25 tonneaux. Its success is due to its highly unique soil. Clay helps provide regular nourishment to the vines, and gravel gives the wine finesse. Iron oxyde and mineral salts present in the sub-soil also contribute towards the wine's special character.
