Château Petit Village 2010
• Domaine: Château Petit Village
• Appellation: Pomerol
• Origin: Right Bank, Bordeaux, France
• Importer: Laguna Cellar
Château Petit Village is located among some of the most storied Pomerol powerhouses (Le Pin, La Conseillante, Vieux Château Certain). It is a property that has huge potential yet to be reflected in its price.
Its deep, brilliant ruby colour hints at exceptional structure. The bouquet is an explosion of perfectly ripe red fruit of great subtlety and astonishing freshness. On the palate, the balance is outstanding: the power of the tannins, long-lasting flesh in the attack… and energy! Perfect balance characterises this Château Petit-Village 2010, full of promise.
"A very strong effort from Petit Village, the 2010 is the finest effort in years. Dark plum with hints of mocha, caramel, sweet currants and cherries, this opulent, savory, and explosive full-bodied wine already is accessible and evolved." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate, (2/27/2013, Issue 205), Rating: 91, Drink: 2013-2025
"The finest wine from this estate since their glorious 1982, the 2010 Petit Village possesses aromas of licorice, black cherries, cassis, truffles and oak. Powerful and deep with a corpulent texture, a silky mouthfeel and a wonderful lushness, it will be drinkable in 2-3 years and last for 15 or more." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate, (5/11/2011, Issue 194), Rating: 90-92, Drink: 2013-2028
Effective October 18, 2019, the US Trade Representative's Office imposed a new 25% value-added tax (i.e., import tariffs) on a wide range of European products (including French wine, Italian cheese and single malt Scotch whisky) to penalize EU subsidies for Airbus. EU has made counter-claims agains the US subsidies for Boeing. A ruling by WTO on EU's counter-claims is expected in the spring of 2020.
For any Futures (en primeur) and Pre-Arrival items, our current prices are shown before taxes and tariffs. Prior to shipment, we may have to collect any tariffs levied by the US government at the time. Tariffs will be based on the date of importation and the rate of US tariffs in place at the time. Current rules exempt wines with alcohol content above 14.5% from the newly imposed 25% tariffs. We will offer free storage in our professional wine cellar in Bordeaux in the event of any delay in importation caused by the uncertainties created by tariffs.
If you believe these tariffs are NOT in the best interest of US consumers like yourself, please consider writing to your congressional representatives to let them hear your voice. You can find out how to contact your representatives here using this directory provided by the US Congress.
