The vineyard of Château La Croix Saint-Georges is remarkably situated on the gravel of the high terrace, between those of Vieux Château Certan, Petit Village and Le Pin.
Deep gravel soil ideally located in the heart of the plateau.
95% Merlot, for roundness, fullness and fruit aromas and 5% Cabernet Franc, for elegance and structure.
inified and matured by Jean-Philippe JANOUEIX, the wine of La Croix Saint-Georges, features exceptional softness and great finesse.
"Another spectacular offering from young perfectionist Jean-Philippe janoueix, this 2006 Pomerol (an appellation that appears to have hit the highest peaks of quality across the board) is a bland of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc cropped at a modest 29 hectoliters per hectare. Similar to the 2005 the natural alcohol achieved 13,6%. A stunningly dense plurn purple color offers up notes of scorched earth, blackberries, plurns, sweet cherries, truffes, and chocolate. Full-bodled with considerable finesse, supple tannins, and a grilled meat-like character, this fleshy, full, opulent wine's huge fruit and glycen admirably cover its substantial tannins. This blockbuster Pomerol can be consurned between 2010 and 2025".
