Marks and reviews
Owned by the Castéja family since 2005, Château La Croix du Casse is a very serious reference in the Pomerol appellation, on Bordeaux’s Right Bank. Equipped with high-performance tools and benefiting from an exceptional vineyard, the property distinguishes itself by its great Pomerol wines, which greatly delight wine lovers in expressing all the typicity of the appellation.
Situated at the southern tip of the Pomerol plateau, the vineyard of Château La Croix du Casse stretches across a terroir characteristic of the appellation, made up of gravel and old sands with a sub-layer containing a large proportion of iron residue.
Despite a rainy end to the year 2021, a particularly dry winter preceded a spring with five nights of intense frost that only slightly affected the vineyard. In mid-May, flowering was rapid and even. The month of June alternated between very hot weather and heavy rainfall accompanied by thunderstorms. The summer was very dry, making 2022 the hottest year since 1947. The harvest began at the beginning of September, revealing small, concentrated grapes, perfectly ripe and rich.
Château La Croix du Casse 2022 is a blend of Merlot (97%) and Cabernet Franc (3%).
