Food Pairings for Château les Trois Croix Red Bordeaux Blend Fronsac
Simultaneously gorgeous and handsome. Big nose of spice and cedar box up front... backed by blackcurrants. Full-bodied, big & long tannins, well-balanced. Long finish.
Recently drank a bottle from 2001 and it is very tired and well past its best - if it ever was good. The flavours were absent and dead.
There hasn't been a bottle of wine that has got me excited in a while. I think you'll either love or hate this. This wine is just so interesting in so many levels. First of all, upon immediate uncorking, the cork looks black as ink. It got me very concerned in the beginning. Took a sip and was so surprised that something so black can be so easy to drink. It starts with a soft but increasingly intense taste of some overripe berry - a prune comes to my mind. See why you may hate it? Then it becomes earthy like soil, then a nice acidity and tannins after. This wine never had even a slight bitterness to it. Very smooth. I was concerned about having a bordeaux with a creamed-sauce pasta. This bordeaux was so distinct that it cuts through the cream sauce, creating a nice contrast, just like what dark coffee and a nice pastry does to your palate. The nose is also interesting. It was actually difficult to get a scent out of it. Very slight plummy fruit, green (as opposed to dark roasted) coffee. Most overpowering scent is of an aromatic chinese herb called "Dong Quai"/female ginseng/Angelica root. Hubby would not believe it till I took a piece out of our pantry and let him smell it, then it was unmistakeable. The nose becomes very prominent as you empty your wine glass. Loved it! Update: Downgrading my rating as this wine fell apart on the following day.
