With continued strong demand, particularly in Asia, the prices of the wines of Bordeaux continue to soar. This is especially true for the grands crus, that, most today, have become out of reach for the average amateur. It remains that we continue to find bordeaux solid price quite correct. Here is the proof here.
The Château La Croix St-Estèphe is found to be the second wine of Château Le Crock, located in the south of the appellation Saint-Estèphe, and which bears the mention Cru Bourgeois for years. It is developed from a thirty hectares of gravel and clay/limestone soil type of this prestigious appellation, giving usually full-bodied wines. Taking good care of the winemaker featured, Michel Rolland, this blend of merlot and cabernets stayed in the barrel a year before its passage in the bottle. From a classic year, it offers a seductive nose of cassis, leather, pencil lead with a wooded background and well integrated. The mouth is ample and suave while showing tannins, medium-bodied. Final supported reminiscent of the cigar box. To pass into a carafe 30-45 minutes before serving with red meat medium rare or, better yet, wait 3 to 5 years so that it is assagisse and wins in harmony.
