2020 Château La Croix du Casse  (Pomerol) 92

Floral in nature, the wine displays cocoa infused cherries and plums on the nose. Medium-bodied, silky and fresh, there is a nice polish to the tannins and loads of juicy sweet, plums, spice, espresso and chocolate in the finish. You can drink this on release. But it will be even better if you age it for a few years. 91-93 Pts

2019 Château La Croix du Casse  (Pomerol) 93

Pure silk and velvet, this is one sexy Pomerol. The fruit is perfectly ripe, opulent, luscious and rich. Fresh, pure, and complex, with a plummy finish that doesn't quit, this is the finest bottle of La Croix du Casse I have ever tasted. 92-94 Pts

2017 Château La Croix du Casse  (Pomerol) 89

Blending 94% Merlot with 6% Cabernet Franc produced a wine that is medium bodied, focusing on chocolate-covered plums, a fruity mid-palate and a soft textured finish. Due to the frost, the estate lost 70% of their crop. 89 Points

Salty, mineralesque tannins, medium bodied with sugar-glazed plums -- bright, red and black -- in a whisper finish. Give this just a year or two of aging before consumption and it should be even better. The wine was produced from a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. 90 Points

2009 Château La Croix du Casse  (Pomerol) 90

With a maturing color, the wine has moved to the secondary stage where you find truffle, smoke and roasted fruits. Medium bodied and fully mature, this is just at its peak today, where it will remain for at least another 7-8 years. 90 Points

From a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Caberent Franc, the wine opens with licorice, juicy plums, black cherry, cocoa and vanilla. Plush in texture, with an open personality, this medium bodied Pomerol wine is not going to make old bones. I'd drink this over the next decade. La Croix du Casse remains one of the better value Bordeaux wines from Pomerol. This can still be purchased for under $30. 90 Points

2006 Château La Croix du Casse  (Pomerol) 90

Ripe, soft, fresh, energetic wine with a plummy, truffle and licorice charm, that males you want to discover what's buried below the plums and dark chocolate. Tahis is drinking quite nicely today. 90 Points

2000 Château La Croix du Casse  (Pomerol) 86

Light, bright and fading, the wine is more interesting on the earthy nose, than with its rustic, red plum finish. This requires drinking. 86 Points

1998 Château La Croix du Casse  (Pomerol) 85

This once supple wine is already starting to drop its fruit. Some pleasure can be gleaned from its black fruit profile. But I distinctly recall thinking this was a much better wine at age 5 than it shows itself today at 10. Drink up. It’s not getting any better. It’s already on the downslide on life. 85 Points
