Tasting Note:

Produced from 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, Petit Cheval is an athletic, muscular cuvee with a beautiful bouquet of finely ground stones - very mineral indeed. The fruit on the palate is bright, clear, clean and precise. There is good texture, but despite the high proportion of Merlot, there is no puppy fat here; this is tense and linear, but ever so graceful. Super-fine tannins here.
