Tasting Notes

The 2019 Les Trois Croix has a beautifully defined bouquet of brambly red fruit laced with pencil lead and woodland aromas, billowing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins that disguise the backbone of this Fronsac, but the freshness is obvious on the finish. Superb. 2024 - 2045

Neal Martin, vinous.com, December 2021

Blackberries, dark plums, mushrooms, licorice, sandalwood and cigar box on the nose. Medium-bodied with firm tannins. Structured, with chewy, dark-fruit character and a firm, flavorful finish. Better from 2024.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, January 2022

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Les Trois Croix struts out of the glass with confident notes of crushed black plums, ripe blackberries and Morello cherries plus suggestions of Sichuan pepper, woodsmoke and menthol with a touch of wild sage. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of crunchy black fruit with a firm frame of rounded tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long and invigorating.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate, June 2020

Not quite as voluptuous as the 2018 at Les Trois Croix, but this is a delicious Fronsac that delivers so much pleasure, and will not need to be set aside for long before being ready to drink. As it opens, black cherry, damson, cocoa bean and caramel notes combine together to make this totally moreish. Love it. 35% new oak, 39hl/ha yield.
