    Les Cruzelles 2018 is deep garnet purple in color. It offers up plum preserves, mulberries, and baked cherries, with wafts of lavender and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, the palate is firm, chewy and a little lean in the middle, with an herbal lift on finish.

    The 2018 Lés Cruzelles impressed from barrel. Now in bottle, it has developed quite a precocious, intense bouquet of blackberry and blueberry fruit, a light savory note and earthy scents emerging with time. The palate is just wonderful: exquisitely balanced, quite structured yet not unapproachable, the acidity perfectly judged, with a ferrous note toward the finish. This is as good a Lalande de Pomerol as you will find in this vintage.

    Château Les Cruzelles

    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.
