2013 Croix Mouton, Bordeaux Supérieur
One of the best Bordeaux Supériers I tasted. A 2013 with a solid center palate, a spicy palate and juicy fruit. Round and juicy.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This wine, dominated by Merlot (about 95%) and the rest Cabernet Franc, shows lovely, round, elegant fruit flavors that resemble mulberry, black cherry and blackcurrant. It doesn-t have a lot of complexity, but the wine is supple, mouth-filling and quite a successful effort from its humble origins.(RP)
The 2013 Croix-Mouton is dark, juicy and absolutely impeccable. Dark red cherry, plum, spices and new leather flesh out in a supple, textured wine endowed with terrific depth and pure resonance. The oak is a bit prominent today, but otherwise all the elements are nicely balanced. Dried flowers and sweet spices linger on the close. This is a terrific showing from proprietor Jean Philippe Janoueix and winemaker Jean Philippe Fort. Tasted two times. (AG)
