80 % Merlot, 20 % Cabernet Franc, 14,5 %-vol.. Sattes Purpur. Berauschendes Heidelbeerbouquet, dahinter Brombeergelee und Lakritze. Am druckvollen Gaumen mit seidiger Textur, engmaschigem Tanningerüst und herrlicher Extraktsüsse, im Hintergrund eine perfekt balancierte Rasse. Im aromatischen Finale eine volle Ladung blauer Beeren, schwarze Johannisbeerdrops und zarte Graphitspuren. Das diesjährige Highlight aus Lalande-de-Pomerol.
The 2019 Les Cruzelles is another terrific success for an estate that's the reference point for what's possible in the Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of sweet red berries, raw cocoa, orange rind, rose petals and loamy soil, it's medium to full-bodied, lively and concentrated, with beautifully refined tannins and a more tightly wound, structured profile than its sibling in the Durantou portfolio, La Chenade.
The 2019 Les Cruzelles, the late Denis Durantou's Lalande-de-Pomerol estate, was picked between 18 and 28 September and matured in 30% new oak. It has a very really gorgeous bouquet with disarmingly pure blackberry and blueberry fruit. The oak is seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with dark berry fruit mixed with dried orange peel and a pinch of sea salt. This has so much character and personality, the salinity on the finish lingers wonderfully.
Blackberries and blueberries with floral and sandalwood undertones. Medium-bodied with cedar highlights and long, linear tannins. Shows energy and brightness. Try after 2024.
