Winemaked and grown by Jean-Philippe Janoueix, the La Croix Saint Georges' wine stands out by its exceptional mellowness, and its great fineness.
This has a concentrated nose of ultraripe blackberry and licorice. Full-bodied, with ripe yet racy tannins and a medium finish. Well-structured. Barrel tasting.
A dense plum/ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet aromas of chocolatey black cherry and black currant fruit intertwined with a notion of wood smoke. Fashioned from a blend of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, it is a round, opulent, pure, elegant effort created by Michel Rolland's top assistant, Jean-Philippe Fort, and proprietor Jean-Philippe Janoueix. Drink it over the next decade or more.
