A red wine from Pomerol
The wine is garnet in color. On the nose, the Chateau La Croix du Casse 2006 has an interesting bouquet of red fruit and truffle notes. On the palate, the wine offers a good balance with tannins of great finesse. It has a fairly sharp acidity and red fruit aromas, but there is also spice with hints of orange peel and dried herbs. The finish reveals a lovely wine. Consume up until 2024.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at the château, the 2006 La Croix du Casse was a wine that I described as a dark horse when I last tasted it in 2010. Six years later it retains an attractive bouquet with cola-tinged red berry fruit, a touch of truffle in the background. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, plenty of ferrous red berry fruit with crisp acidity, tangy orange peel and bay leaf/dried herbs notes furnishing the finish, which has become a little drier in recent years, but is still pleasurable. Enjoy this Pomerol over the next 6-8 years. Tasted May 2016.
