Description

A fresh and balanced red Pomerol wine

The estate

Owned by the Casteja 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

2020 was marked by an early vine development resulting from a relatively mild winter, which led to an early bud break followed by rapid flowering. The uncertain climatic conditions in May and June caused some concern about the health of the vines. The summer was marked by hot and particularly dry weather, which slowed down veraison. The grapes harvested in September were of high quality and gave this wine the roundness, richness and elegance characteristic of the great vintages. 2020 is in line with 2018 and 2019, two exceptional vintages from the property.

The blend

The Château La Croix du Casse 2020 is made from a blend of Merlot (94%) and Cabernet Franc (6%).

The tasting

Colour

The wine is a beautiful purple colour, adorned with subtle ruby ​​reflections.

Nose

The expressive nose blends tasty fragrances of redcurrant, raspberry and blackcurrant bud.

Palate

A very smooth attack precedes a mid-palate which seduces with its balance and freshness. The persistent finish is beautifully harmonious.
