2020 Château Croizet-Bages  (Pauillac) 91

Tobacco, cedar, flowers, mint and creme de cassis come to the forefront with little effort. Medium/full-bodied, with a generous dose of chewy currants, herbs and cigar wrapper, there is serious Pauillac character here. This is the best vintage of Croizet-Bages I recall tasting. Priced correctly, this is worth taking a look at. 90-92 Pts

2018 Château Croizet-Bages  (Pauillac) 90

Medium-bodied, forward, fruity, fresh and already showing some secondary nuances of tobacco leaf, herbs, olives, forest, cedar and cherry tones. Give this 5 years or so in the bottle and it should start to show quite nicely. This is a solid step up in quality here. 90 Points

2012 Château Croizet-Bages  (Pauillac) 86

Light in color and fruit, this early drinking blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc is slightly more interesting on the tobacco and red fruit nose, than in the crisp, slightly tart cranberry and cassis finish. 86 Points

Medium bodied, light in style, focused on red plum and cranberry fruits, the wine is on the bright, fresh, crisp side. The nose is more interesting with its blackberry, earth and tobacco notes. Produced from a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. 88 Points

2008 Château Croizet-Bages  (Pauillac) 84

Better on the nose, with its cedar, tobacco, and sharp, red berry profile, than on the palate. Medium bodied, with a bright, crisp, red fruit character, the wine manages to be strict and short. This is what my old school British friends would have called four square. 84 Points

2005 Château Croizet-Bages  (Pauillac) 84

Very light in color and with little concentration or character, there is some dark berries and earthy notes in this already mature wine. Drink up. 84 Points
