This Pomerol wine is aged in barrels for 18 months, just like the great wines.

Pairings : this wine is ideal with grilled beef or beef in sauce.

Tasting notes : This wine has a purple colour and a fruity, slightly woody nose. On the palate, this wine is pleasant with light tannins.

Vinification and vineyard : 

Location : the plots are located to the east of the Bordeaux vineyards, in the area known as the Libournais, on the right bank of the Dordogne.

Climate : temperate, Aquitaine oceanic, warm enough to allow vines to be grown even on flat ground. Temperatures are mild in winter and relatively hot in summer. Plenty of sunshine ensures that the grapes reach optimum ripeness.

Soil : sandy gravel and Crasse de Fer.

Vinification and ageing : the grapes are harvested by hand, using open crates to allow water and moisture to pass through. The grapes are then sorted on a sorting table.

 

Appellation : AOC Pomerol is located in the Libournais region, forming a terrace above the Isle, a tributary of the Dordogne. The appellation is famous for its Petrus, one of the rarest and most expensive crus in the world. Les Chemins de la Croix du Casse is the second wine from the Château La Croix du Casse estate. Aged in barrels, it benefits from attentive care to present all the characteristics of a great Pomerol. The first vintage was 2005. Our producer is one of the last great independent family groups in Bordeaux.

Cellaring potential : 2 to 3 years

Merlot : this variety is widespread in Bordeaux, the South-West and Languedoc, producing supple, richly-coloured wines with aromas of prune, violet and red fruit.

Cabernet Franc : This grape variety is widely planted in the Bordeaux and South-West regions. It produces wines that are less colourful than those made from Cabernet Sauvignon, but nevertheless expressive, with notes of raspberry, violet and liquorice. It is often used in blends with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
