Media Reviews

Jane Anson

This is more concentrated and powerful that the Cruzelles, even though the two estates are right next door, showing its cooler clay terroir in the weight of the tannins, and the body of the wine just a little bigger. Again, it’s highly enjoyable with the personality differences clearer than in many years. Harvest took place between 18 September and 28 September. 40% new oak was used. A yield of 40hl/ha. Drinking Window 2024 - 2038. 90 points

This is produced by Denis Durantou of Château L’Eglise Clinet. The 2018 Les Cruzelles is blended of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc with 40% new oak and 14.5% alcohol. Deep purple-black in color, it features slightly reduced notions of asphalt and tires over a core of warm red and black plums, blackberry pie and boysenberries with hints of fruitcake, incense and potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and packed with perfumed black fruit, it has a velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing long. 91-93 points
