Château Petit Bocq 2016
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Merlot & 1% Petit Verdot
Château Petit Bocq’s uniqueness also comes from its unusually oaky bouquet, which really makes it stand out: nicely balanced and lightly toasted oak brings out aromas of mocha, coffee and black fruits.
“91/100. The 2016 Petit Bocq is deep garnet-purple in color with cedar and earth aromas over a core of red and black currants, cherries and underbrush. The medium-bodied palate is elegant, vibrant and refreshing. 2019-2031.” (Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Parker’s Wine Advocate, 30th Nov 2018)
