95 bod. - James Suckling

Mnogo godina je vlasnik Château La Croix du Casse bio Jean-Michel Arcaute, jeddan od istinskih inovatora u Bordou, koji je Croix du Casse doveo na prednju liniju imanja u Pomerolu. Imanje se sastoji od 9 hektara vinograda (80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc) na južnom kraju apelacije. Sazrijeva 24 mjeseca u hrastovim buradima, od kojih je 50% novih. Flašira se nerafinisano i nefiltrirano. Ovaj šljivasti i senzualno bogati Pomerol koji odiše aromama slatkog crnog voća, bilja, kafe i tamne čokolade uz note dima, vanile i hrasta. Neodoljivo je dok je mlado, a poboljšava se čitavu dekadu.

Château La Croix du Casse was for many years owned by Jean-Michel Arcaute, one of Bordeaux`s true innovators who propelled La Croix du Casse into the front line of Pomerol properties. The estate consists of 9 hectares of vines (80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc) located at the southern end of the appellation. The wine is aged in oak barriques, 50% of which are new, for 24 months. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered. This is a plummy, voluptuously rich Pomerol that oozes sweet, black fruits, herbs, coffee and dark chocolate aromas accompanied by smoky vanilla oak notes. Irresistible while young, it will continue improving for a decade or so.
