A 2009 Pomerol wine with great potential

The large majority of this Pomerol wine is Merlot and the rest is Cabernet Franc. This racy Pomerol from 2009 has ripe and silky tannins. The wine is tasty and balanced, and offers good persistence in the mouth. It is best to wait a few more years to discover the full potential of the Chateau La Croix Du Casse 2009.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Purchased by Philippe Casteja in 2005, this estate has jumped significantly in quality. It is not in one of the best sectors of Pomerol, located on the lower slopes off the plateau on sandy and clay soils near Taillefer. This blend of 93% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc offers up notes of coffee beans, chocolate, Asian plum sauce and mocha. A sexy, full-throttle wine with low acidity and loads of fruit, it should drink nicely for 12-15+ years.
