Chateau Croix-Mouton is considered one of the best Bordeaux Superieur ever. The wine consists almost exclusively of the Merlot grape variety, which harmonizes ideally with the loamy soil, a further 2.5% are Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Petit Verdot, which are not always included in the final cuvée. The vines are on average almost 40 years old, which gives the wine aromatic complexity and depth.
Owner Jean-Philippe Janoueix has a knack for the ideal time to pick the grapes, even in a fully ripe vintage like 2018, the wine has "only" 13.5% alcohol, which is rather low in the warm year and given the high proportion of Merlot . So the wine stays handy and elegant, you like to pour yourself more, with dinner or simply solo.
Jeff Leve, thewinecellarinsider.com writes about the 2018 Croix-Mouton: "It is going to be hard to find a better value wine in Bordeaux than this."
