94+ Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate: "Pow! The 100% Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Le Petit Cheval Blanc explodes from the glass, delivering a tantalizing perfume of ripe peaches, mango and fresh pineapple with hints of lime blossoms, lemongrass, fresh ginger and spearmint plus a waft of cedar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with tropical and stone fruit flavors complemented by a compelling textural component and a racy line of acid, finishing very long and very delicious." 11/18
97 Points, James Suckling: "The refined, yellow grapefruit nose and the elegant first impression on the palate hardly prepare you for the tidal wave of flavor and freshness that then hits you. Yet, the wine remains so light-footed and delicate. Then you glide into the distance through the very long, silky finish. Drink or hold." 2/19
92 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter: "Petit Cheval is back in 2016 after a year's absence, but at just 7% of overall production, compared to 77% grand vin and 16% sold off. The water regulation was more challenging this year for the youngest vines, and although none of these stopped production they did slow down. This is a sappy, fragrant and well sculpted Petit Cheval that doesn't have quite the depth of vintages like 2010 but is a serious wine of very good quality. Alcohol levels are not as pronounced as some other wines because the team here are always aim to pick relatively early, when the grapes are still fresh. This has the lowest pH for many years on the other hand, shown in the sculpted lift on the finish. The blend is 49% Cabernet Franc, 47% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 50% new oak. 72 IPT, 3.67pH." 4/17
