Chateau la Croix St Georges 2009
|Brand||Chateau la Croix St Georges|
|Grape||Bordeaux Blend, Cabernet Franc, Merlot|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
A beautiful blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon that nearly hit 15% natural alcohol in this remarkable vintage, proprietor Jean-Philippe Janoueix has produced a dense plum/purple-colored 2009 revealing notes of creosote, coffee, mocha, licorice, incense and blueberries as well as black fruits. Thick, juicy, full-bodied, mouthcoating, viscous and youthful, it needs 3-5 years of bottle age and should keep for 20-25 years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
Black olive on the nose, with flowers and fruit. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a racy finish. There's plenty of subtle fruit and a dark chocolate finish. Firm and silky. 80 percent Merlot and 20 percent Cabernet Sauvignon.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
