Château Jardin de Petit Village
As all wine produced in Pomerol, Château Petit-Village is unclassified, but the estate is estimated among the great growths of the region. Château Petit-Village is a jewel set in the highest part of the magnificent terroir of the Pomerol plateau, on deep gravel and clay soils with a ferrous base in the heart of the appellation. Le Jardin de Petit Village is the second wine of Château Petit Village.
Chateau Jardin de Petit Village 2000
The vineyard sits at the highest point of Pomerol, where soils are the most gravelly and thus drainage is
optimized, which is an advantage in the maritime climate. Essentially made from the Merlot grape, it is a harmonious, round and elegant
wine, ready to drink earlier than Château Petit-Village. Black raspberry with
hints of fennel on the nose, the wine is light in style and delicate in
structure with a polite cherry finish. Le Jardin de Petit Village is made from 100% Merlot and is intended for earlier drinking. "Floral, tobacco and meat aromas follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with medium firm tannins and a long refreshing finish. Second wine of Château Petit-Village. Best after 2006. 1,300 cases made." - Rated 87, Wine Spectator.

Pomerol's legendary status in the wine world, and its status as a symbol of wealth and success in the world in general, is even more impressive considering the fact that the area's history is relatively short. In the early 1900s, it began to emerge that Merlot was extremely successful in Pomerol, and the bland white wines which had up until then dominated the market for Pomerol, became less popular. Rapidly, châteaux such as Pétrus made a name for themselves.
