This 11 hectare property in Lalande de Pomerol is situated 1 km from the famous plateau of Pomerol, and is visible from the back door of Eglise Clinet. The Château was purchased in 2000 by Denis Durantou who ages the crop in 50% new oak and relegates fruit from the younger vines to his La Chenade label. Often better than many Pomerols and Saint Emilions that we taste, yet far cheaper - thanks to the unfashionable appellation. 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc. Grapes are selected from the best terroirs of the vineyard - clay soils similar to those on the plateau of Pomerol. A wine that always reminds us of a top Pomerol. Recent vintages have been stunning and there have been impressive results in recent blind tastings including the "Southwold Group". Along with Roc de Cambes, this is, in our view, the best wine produced in a "satelite appellation" of Bordeaux. Pricing policy is moderate. We absolutely love Les Cruzelles! 2625 cases will be produced in 2018 from 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, aged in 40% new oak.
Rich and solidly tannic, this is a dramatic statement for this lesser appellation, and the wine has the concentration to carry the treatment. In fact, it finishes rather elegant and classical. You could drink this with a steak tonight, but those who have the patience to cellar it until at least 2020 will get so much more pleasure! ~93 James Suckling (2015 vintage)... more »
