Tasting Notes

Deep purple red colour. The nose is complex and delicate. Notes of red fruits (raspberries, gooseberry), vanilla and caramel introduced by oak-ageing, adds elegance and complexity. The tannins are silky, and fine. In the mouth, the wine is beautifully full-bodied and richly fruity. A fresh, feminine and velvety wine.

Producer details

Château La Croix Des Moines is produced on a 11-hectare family owned property owned by Jean-Louis Trocard, located in the heart of Lalande-de-Pomerol in compliance with the most stringent winemaking standards. The generosity and richness of the merlot grapes give a charming wine with outstanding elegance. Made with greatest care according to our tradition, its very fine oaky notes are harmoniously blended with the aromas.
