Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Petit Village (in magnum) has a very simple bouquet with earthy red fruit that feels a little rustic compared to some of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin on the entry, mulberry mixed with leather and game, tapering in towards a finish that at least offers decent persistence.
Winespectator / James Suckling (85)
A little stewed, showing herbs, berries and tobacco. Medium-bodied, with slightly angular tannins and berry fruit on the finish.
Bricky garnet. Scented maturity of undergrowth and leather. Rather nicely chewy tannins and still some red fruit at the core. Just slightly drying on the finish but would be fine with food. (JH)
