Chateau la Croix de Pez Saint Estephe 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Estephe|
|Brand||Chateau la Croix de Pez|
From one of the many estates on the Pez plateau, this spicy, toasty wine also offers plenty of black-currant fruits. The freshness of the vintage gives it a lift. Drink from 2023.
The 2016 La Croix de Pez has a perfumed, almost exotic bouquet with fig and date aromas infusing the red fruit, although it maintains commendable definition and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a little "glossy" in style but with a silky smooth, fairly oaky finish that deserves another two years in bottle. Good potential here. Tasted at the Oenoconseil tasting room in Bordeaux.
