    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Château Les Cruzelles, Lalande de Pomerol, 2015
    Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
    I've loved this wine since the first time I tasted it En Primeur, and at six years old it's at the perfect moment to drink. Juicy bueberry and raspberry fruits, a trace of lemongrass and crushed stone minerality, a great choice to bring out on an easy evening with friends and feel sure that it will be a hit. 45% new oak.

    2015 Les Cruzelles is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and has a medium to deep garnet-purple color. It drifts effortlessly out of the glass with notions of prunes, spice cake, and star anise, giving way to hints of sandalwood and wild sage. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chewy and savory, delivering muscular black fruit preserves and an herbal lift on the finish.

    The 2015 Les Cruzelles is tasted from two bottles. The one at the blind tasting just felt a little out of sorts. The second bottle opened at home allowing aeration replicates its showing just after bottling: dark cherries and crushed strawberry, a succulent palate with a hint of black olive on the finish. That's more like it. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting and a bottle from my own cellar.

    This is superstar wine-maker, Denis Durantou’s flagship estate in Lalande de Pomerol. The Cruzelles vineyards have more clay than those of La Chenade and the wines tends to be a more brooding and serious. There is a slightly higher proportion of Merlot in the blend (than La Chenade) and Denis utilises a little more new oak during elevage. As you’d expect from the L’Eglise Clinet team, the wines are polished, exuberant and fruit filled and always represent tremendous value for money.
