The 2016 Croix Mouton has an attractive, perfumed, floral bouquet with crushed violet petals infusing the ripe black cherry and cassis fruit. I appreciate the elegance on display here. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, well judged acidity, a pleasant saline and black olive note surfacing towards the fresh finish. This Bordeaux Supérieur from Jean-Philippe Janoueix can often punch above its class and the 2016 is one of those.
Robert Parker – 90 pt.
Attractive fruit to this young red with soft tannins and a solid acid backbone. Medium body and a vivid finish.
James Suckling – 90 pt.
Merlot en Cabernet Franc
Deze wijn is op dronk, maar mag nog gerust 5-10 jaar liggen!
