2012 Château Les Trois Croix  (Fronsac) 88

Medium-bodied, bright, fresh, stony red berries come alive with a touch of thyme, underbrush, cherry and dark cocoa in the round, soft, polished, crisp finish. This is drinking about as good as it is going to get.

When to Drink Chateau Les Trois Croix, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Les Trois Croix is better with at least 2-3 years of aging in good vintages. Young vintages can be decanted for up to 1 hour, helping the wine soften to help develop the aromatic character.

Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau Les Trois Croix offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 3-10 years of age after the vintage.

Serving Chateau Les Trois Croix with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips

Chateau Les Trois Croix is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.

Chateau Les Trois Croix is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Chateau Les Trois Croix is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
