Chateau La Croix, known for its powerful structure and deep flavors. Dark fruits and berries such as plum and blackcurrant are commonly used to describe the flavors of this elaborate ever so elegant Pomerol. Tannins tend to be relatively high, offering a firm structure.
This best of its class Pomerol pairs wonderfully with the majority of braised, roasted or grilled meats ranging from beef, veal, pork and game, as well as soft strong cheeses.
Serve at room temperature, but not warm (68 to 70 degrees is ideal). Best if decanted or opened 30 minutes to two hours before serving.
The winery, spirit of Family:
The vineyards of Château La Croix can today give the best of themselves, that is to say one of the greatest wines of Pomerol.
Tradition and quality, since the acquisition of Château La Croix by Joseph, Marie‐Antoinette and Jean‐François JANOUEIX, Château La Croix has taken on the value of a symbol: that of continuity at the head of the estate and over three centuries of a wine‐growing elite.
The Joseph Janoueix family has been perpetuating the art of vines and wine for over 100 years. The reputation of its wines has been built by the constant search for quality and respect of its customers. The Joseph Janoueix house remains united and continues to perfect the company.
The restoration of the property testifies to this "Joseph Janoueix style", i.e. a synthesis of wine and wine production between modernity and fidelity to the land.
