Chateau Croix Mouton Bordeaux Superieur 2014
|Brand||Chateau Croix Mouton|
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Croix Mouton offers creme de cassis, boysenberry jam and a hint of bell pepper on the nose. It is upfront and quite bold for the vintage, typical for the estate. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, full of blackberry and cassis fruit, a pleasant fleshiness towards the glossy finish. For certain this is, as always, unapologetically modern in style, but this is balanced and powerful.
Wine SpectatorA lightly toasted juniper thread weaves around a direct core of crushed plum and cherry fruit. Offers a slightly taut, sanguine-edged finish. Drink now. 20,000 cases made.
