"Rich, but very juicy, with lots of bittersweet ganache, cassis, linzer torte and dark spice notes driving from start to finish. The powerful finish has lots of flesh." (WS)

"Another small estate owned by the talented Jean-Philippe Janoueix, this 12-acre vineyard, planted in gravelly soils, was cropped at 28 hectoliters per hectare, and the final blend was 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc that reached 14.5% natural alcohol. Full-bodied with notes of smoky barbecue interwoven with creme de cassis, black cherries, licorice and espresso roast, it reveals excellent fruit and a juicy attack and mid-palate before the tannins kick in. Big and masculine, it will need 5-6 years of cellaring, and should keep for 15-20+." (WA)

"La Croix St. Georges produced from 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc is aged in 100% new oak of which 50% is a unique cigar shaped, oak barrel. The Bordeaux wine reached 14.5% alcohol. On the nose, oak, flowers, cherry blossom, mocha and coca powder. Full bodied, concentrated and flashy in texture, the wine ends with fresh, a black cherry and chocolate finish." (JL)

"Balanced with beautiful fruit with blueberry and currants. Full, yet refined. Delicate texture.$$" (JS)
