2011 Croix Mouton, Bordeaux Supérieur

SKU #1141046 87-90 points Wine Spectator

 Ripe, slightly extracted in feel with a taut plum skin edge running from start to finish, along with crushed cherry and blackberry fruit. A good tobacco note wafts through the finish. (Web-2012)

James Suckling

 Pretty aromas of blackberries and dried orange peel. Full and soft textured. Full to medium body, with velvety tannins and a bright finish...  (4/2012)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 From the talented Jean-Philippe Janoueix, the 2011 Croix-Mouton over-delivers in flavor intensity, body and richness. For a Bordeaux Superieur it possesses an atypically dark ruby color as well as a chunky, fleshy bouquet of red and black fruits, spice box and earth. Drink this medium-bodied effort over the next 4-5 years.  (4/2014)

½*V Boysenberry fruit and a good middle.

The precocious 2011 Croix Mouton has all the virtues of the best Bordeaux Superieur and made me feel like I was in a Paris bistro eating steak frites as soon as I tasted it. This plummy, soft wine is so approachable and fun without being flabby or weak in any way. Bordeaux isn't all expensive, and this bottle is far superior to domestic Merlot blends at this price or even the $20 mark. Yum!

Decent fruit, sweet, bright and spicy.

* Concentrated dark fruit, very strong, serious wine.

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
