Chateau la Croix de Jaugue St. Emilion 2008

External Review:

Chateau La Croix de Jaugue Saint Emilion is deep ruby red in color with aromas of blackberry, strawberry, plum, vanilla and tobacco. Medium-full in body with moderate acidity and silky tannins, this Bordeaux offers rich flavors of plums, blueberries, black currants, vanilla and spice. It was aged for 8-10 months in second-year oak barrels. Beautifully balanced and already seductive, it should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years. The wine is smooth and long on the finish.
