Tasting Notes:

Using 90% Merlot with 10% Cabernet Franc, this wine shows a rich, ruby color. On the nose, dreamy chocolate-covered black raspberries followed by dark juicy plums and just the right amount of cocoa and floral accents in the endnote.

VinousThe 2016 Les Cruzelles is every bit as captivating from bottle as it was from barrel. Dense, pliant and inviting, the 2016 has so much to offer. Black cherry, plum, menthol, licorice, new leather and lavender all run through this super-expressive, pliant Lalande de Pomerol from Denis Durantou. The 2016 offers a striking combination of fruit intensity and structure. I loved it.

Wine AdvocateThe medium garnet-purple colored 2016 Les Cruzelles gives up notes of raspberry preserves and chocolate-covered cherries with touches of unsmoked cigars and tilled soil. Medium-bodied and softly textured, the palate delivers loads of red and black fruits with a velvety texture and lively finish.
