CHÂTEAU LA CROIX SAINT GEORGES

2012 Pomerol

Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Pomerol & Lalande de Pomerol
Village Pomerol

Clearly Jean-Philippe Janoueix has made a very good fist of this vintage. His Pomerol is very very dark, with a plump smooth entry, lots of fruit, lots of weight, but also a restraint, a sense of more to come. Very well made in a modern style. Rating: 91-91 L&S (Apr 2013)

Currently out of stock in our warehouse.

Black plum gives a fleshy richness on both nose and palate. There is a lovely suppleness to the palate sweet fruit and the rounded tannins. Towards the back bramble refreshes but the finish is lush and rich. 2016-25 Rating: 89-91 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk(Dec 2013)

The estate has turned out a dense ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied wine exhibiting notes of coffee bean, mocha, black currants, blackberries, charcoal and barbecue smoke. It represents another fine example of the talents of the ambitious, young Philippe Janoueix. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. This underrated 2.5-acre estate has fashioned a blend of nearly 95% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc that tips the scales at 13.8% natural alcohol. Yields were a low 30 hectoliters per hectare, and the property is on the Catusseau plateau near Le Pin, and slightly further away, Vieux Chateau Certan. 2013 - 2028 Rating: 91-93 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com(Apr 2013)
