Tasting Note:

Petit Cheval represents just 10% of the production, but hails from the five distinct terroirs covering all the different soil types. This really is a mini Cheval - such a thoroughbred, packed with crème de cassis and fine minerals, then there is a wonderful florality, notes of blood orange and this vital, mouth-watering salinity. Despite its density, there is a real sense of polish to the lithe silky tannins; a sumptuous, handsome wine that is deft, poised and effortless. Superb.
