Chateau La Croix Des Moines - Lalande de Pomerol 2012Dark And Intense
Available 29th Jan 2017
Red colour, dark and intense. The nose is flattering red fruit.
With agitation prove floral aroma, spicy and menthol in addition to fine woody and toasted to give a wine of great aromatic complexity.
The palate is smooth, round. Great elegance and harmony.
Very good Merlot. Plush and soft, downright plummy.
Oak is still very much upfront but after each sip, you sense the fruit and wood battle for dominance.
