Chateau Croix-Mouton 2015 Bordeaux Superieur
The historic Croix-Mouton estate is located not far from Fronsac, close to the Dordogne river. Present day owner and winemaker Jean-Philippe Janoueix purchased the property in 1997 and upgraded practically every aspect of the property. This Bordeaux Superieur is a combination of classic style and drinkability right now. The fruit is upfront, ripe and very bright. There’s lots of crushed red cherry and blackberry notes, hints of plum and limestone rocks keeping it fresh. It’s incredibly smooth and supple on the palate, with round shoulders, and finely woven tannins. This is that all around crowd-pleasing style of Bordeaux that will go with a variety of cuisines.
