Description

The intense fruit of a subtle and generous Pomerol wine

The estate
Owned by the Castéja family since 2005, Château La Croix du Casse is considered to be a very important reference in the Pomerol appellation, on the right bank of Bordeaux. Equipped with high-technology tools and boasting an exceptional vineyard, the property stands out for its great Pomerol wines, which are full of charm and a seductive expression of their appellation.

The vineyard
Located at the southern tip of the Pomerol plateau, the Château La Croix du Casse vineyard extends over a terroir characteristic of the appellation, comprising gravel and ancient sand soils upon a subsoil containing a significant proportion of iron (crasse de fer).

The vintage
2019 was a surprising and superb vintage. The year was indeed characterised by a great drought with not too much rainfall. Two summer months brought scorching temperatures. The harvest at Château Croix du Casse took place quite early, from September 16 for the Merlot, to October 7 for the Cabernet. From the very beginning, all the requirements for a superb vintage were met, yielding wines with a gorgeous depth of colour, well-rounded fruit, great length on the palate and historically high degrees of alcoholic for all grape varieties.

The blend
Merlot (95%), cabernet franc (5%).

The tasting
Tasted as a wine future, the Château La Croix du Casse 2019 displays in the glass a cherry red colour. The aromatic bouquet if very impressive, revealing notes of red fruit (redcurrant and plum), combined with floral fragrances. On the palate, the wine develops gradually, revealing a delicious and mellow texture with tannins that are already well integrated, while also retaining great freshness. Product of another superb vintage ending in -9, the Château La Croix du Casse 2019 is undoubtedly a must-try Pomerol, which will be appreciated both in its youth or after several years of ageing.
