HALF BOTTLES: RED

Bordeaux - Château PETIT VAL, Grand Cru. St Emilion

2012 Château PETIT VAL, Grand Cru. St Emilion (Half Bottle)

Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Saint Emilion on the 'right bank' (to the east of the town of Bordeaux) is renowned for its relatively soft, gentle style of claret. This property is just 2 miles from the village
Grape Variety: 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc; aged in oak (30% new) for 18 months
Producer: Owned by Denis Boutet, Petit Val is indeed petit, a mere 9 hectares. That's actually very common in St Emilion where smaller family-owned estates still dominate, unlike the huge properties in the Médoc
Food Match: Claret with roast lamb is considered classic, but the Merlot here makes this compatible with richer dishes too - cottage or shepherd's pie would do nicely
Old Bridge Rating: A very classic Merlot dominated St Emilion, ripe but serious and, conveniently, approachable when young. In this great vintage the lesser-known properties really have over-delivered
