ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Château Petit-Village is situated in the heart of the Pomerol appellation; its 11 hectares of vines lie next door to Vieux Château Certan. The estate shares an owner (AXA Millesimes) with Château Pichon-Baron and, as with the latter, Petit-Village has benefited from renovation and improvement over the last two decades. Lower yields in the vineyards, a new barrel cellar and fermentation vats have all been implemented by Daniel Llose and Serge Ley, who oversee the work in the vineyards and the winery between them. Le Jardin de Petit Village is the second wine of Château Petit Village.
The fruit was kept as separate plots and fermented in temperature controlled, epoxy lined concrete vats for 10 days. Total maceration lasted between 26 and 30 days with punch downs at the early stages of fermentation. The wine was then aged in one year old French oak barrels for 12 months.
