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.

2016 Château La Croix du Casse  (Pomerol) 90

Red plum and cherry, with smoke, licorice and incense aromas open the wine. From there you find a medium-bodied, soft, fresh, forward shot of ripe spicy cherries. You can drink this on release or age it for a few years. The wine was produced from a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc.

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.

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.

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.

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.

With red plum, earth, herb and cocoa notes, this soft, easy drinking, medium bodied wine is already giving what it has to offer.

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.

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.
