"This is rock-solid, with smoldering charcoal notes lending a pleasant framework to the core of crushed plum, blackberry and anise flavors. Dark humus accents line the finish. This has the grip for mid-term cellaring. Drink now through 2020. 2,000 cases made."

James Suckling 90-91
"A little delicate on the center palate, but this still offers a medium body and fine and racy tannins. Pretty."

" Château La Croix Lartigue is personally elaborated by Derenoncourt Consultants very own Stéphane Derenoncourt, Simon Blanchard and Julien Lavenu. The property is located at the high point of the village of Belvès de Castillon, not far from Domaine de L’A (the home of Stéphane and headquarters for the team). The specificity of the area is in relation to the river gravel deposits on the height of the appellation’s limestone plateau, as well as beautiful marl slopes with southwest and north exposures. Côtes de Castillon became an AOC in 1989 and quickly gained recognition for its approachable and easily consumed young wines. The appellation is home to many small, family owned domains that are nestled into the forested hillsides. L’Expression de La Croix Lartigue embodies Stéphane's preferred approach, letting the vineyard and vintage speak the volumes while he and the boys simply shepherd the process. The result is one of the great value discoveries in Bordeaux as it out drinks its pricier neighbors while delivering a wine that will also age well. "~ Winery notes

A great addition for your collection - A savory expression from the Bordeaux region, this Merlot, Cabernet Franc blend will steal the show at your next gathering. A broodingly dark medium to heavy body hits the nose with soft blackberries, vanilla and cocoa. Firm tannins throughout provide the backbone as underlying coffee, tobacco and stone notes support smoky dark fruits on the palette. Will easily hold up for several years in your cellar.
