2000 La Croix St. Georges, Pomerol

SKU #1058713 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This was a great sleeper of the vintage in 2000 from producer Jean-Jacques Janoueix. A 100% Merlot cuvee coming from a nearly 12-acre vineyard situated between Vieux Chateau Certan and Le Pin, the 2000 shocked a number of people at the tasting, only because they had no expectations, and had never had the wine before. It wasn’t a surprise for me. Inky blue/purple-colored, with notes of graphite, blueberry liqueur, smoke, incense, sweet licorice, and hints of chocolate fudge and spicy oak, this full-bodied, opulent, rich wine seems to just be entering its window of full maturity, where it should last for another two decades. Very impressive. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Interesting combination of berry and green olives on the nose. Full-bodied and silky, with ripe tannins and a long, fruity finish. Big wine. This is a Pomerol that I seldom taste, but it has plenty of stuffing. Inner quote mark (3/2003)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full ruby. Sexy, rather Burgundian aromas of creamy raspberry, cherry, leather and smoky oak. Opulent, thick and sweet; fleshy and impressive. A rather powerful style of Pomerol, finishing with big, ripe tannins and impressive length. A real attention-grabber. Inner quote mark (6/2001)
