The Saint Emilion Grand Cru Château la Croizille has been owned by the de Schepper family since 1996. Since 1999, the wine is produced as an ultra-premium selection, strict selection of the grapes, 100% new barrels and a low yield lead to a concentrated but never heavy wine, which is one of the best growths of the area. Since it is not sold by the big negociants in Bordeaux, it is still an insider tip, although the wine came to the TOP 3 in a tasting of the magazine Decanter of the vintage 2005 with assembled the Saint-Emilion elite. Croizille got spectacular 19.5 / 20 points.
Château la Croizille is located in the very best position in the immediate vicinity of the Châteaux Troplong-Mondot, la Mondotte and Tertre-Rotheboeuf. La Croizille also has the only terrace vineyard in Bordeaux. The newly created futuristic building is a real eye-catcher in the architecturally rather conservative Bordeaux area and is also open to visitors.
The 2009 vintage is one of the so-called century vintages. Of course, under these ideal conditions at Chateau la Croizille, a truly great wine with a storage potential of several decades was made. Now, in 2019, the 2009 la Croizille is in its first phase of consumption, the wine is quite elegant for the vintage and avoids the sometimes sprawling degrees of alcoholic in many merlot wines of this vintage. Everything here is made to get elegance, the wine has an impressive freshness and structure.
