Chateau la Croix L Artique L Expression 90 Swj/91js 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Lovely balance and complexity to this young wine with iron, tobacco and berry character. Ripe fruit with some chocolate. Full and pretty with fine tannins. Long finish. Drink or hold...91" JamesSuckling.com 03/13 "Crimson-glinted dark ruby. Sports a charming, slightly high-toned bouquet of cold stones, black earth, cola, black cherries, cassis, and No.2 pencil. Lithe and medium-bodied in the mouth, with an attractive red-berry flavored aftertaste. Delicious now, this should be drunk over the next three years....90+" SWJ 11/12
