Chateau Croizet-Bages 2017

Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red Chateau Croizet-Bages Chateau Croizet-Bages 2017 1042/17

The Power and Refinement of a Great Pauillac

A Grand Cru Classe of the prestigious Pauillac appellation on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region, Chateau Croizet-Bages has enjoyed a remarkable ascent to its current reputation. It was first acquired by the Quie family in the 40s. Jean-Philippe Quie and his sister Anne-Françoise have taken over the reins of the property since 2004, with an aim to elevate the wine to the become one of the most beautiful references of its appellation.

The last few vintages show a wonderful evolution in quality, with wines of great density and depth, power and refinement. This is also evidenced by the new vintage of the estate’s Grand Vin, the Chateau Croizet-Bages 2017.

2017 was a challenging vintage, demanding uncompromising technical skill from the team. Although the vineyard located near the Gironde estuary was damaged by the frost at the end of April, the most beautiful parcels of Chateau Croizet-Bages were spared. The nice weather during the summer allowed the vines to retake their normal vegetative cycle until an early harvest, starting with Merlot on September 8 and ending with Cabernet Sauvignon on September 29.

Through careful vinifications carried out under the guidance of the experienced oenologist consultant Eric Boissenot, the Chateau Croizet-Bages 2017 reveals a fabulous vintage indeed.

With a blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (65%) complemented by Merlot (35%), the Chateau Croizet-Bages 2017 reveals all the power of a great Pauillac through a wine that expresses great elegance and refinement. With a beautiful maturity, the palate evolves a nice structure, with subtle tannins reflecting the precise extractions, while the powerful finish offers beautiful length. An elegant Pauillac that does not lack character.
