Description

The 2014 Croix Canon, the estate's second wine, emerges from a parcel nestled between Berliquet, Vieux Château Mazerat and Angélus. A blast of dark red stone fruit, smoke, tar, licorice and earthiness hits the palate in a wine that is dense and powerful, yet also weightless and quite classic in conception. It is precisely those contrasts that make the Croix Canon so compelling. The Croix Canon is not sold en primeur, but when it is eventually released, it will be a must-buy. 89-92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Mid crimson. Very appetising and fresh on the nose. Round and well balanced with lots of vigour. Beautifully balanced even if almost unnervingly forward. GV. 16.5 points, Jancis Robinson, Jancisrobinson.com
