BRANDChâteau la Croix St Georges
Another spectacular offering from young perfectionist Jean-Philippe janoueix, this 2006 Pomerol (an appellation that appears to have hit the highest peaks of quality across the board) is a bland of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc cropped at a modest 29 hectoliters per hectare. Similar to the 2005 the natural alcohol achieved 13,6%. A stunningly dense plurn purple color offers up notes of scorched earth, blackberries, plurns, sweet cherries, truffes, and chocolate.
Full-bodled with considerable finesse, supple tannins, and a grilled meat-like character, this fleshy, full, opulent wine's huge fruit and glycen admirably cover its substantial tannins. This blockbuster Pomerol can be consurned between 2010 and 2025
