Bordeaux AOC 2018, Chateau La Croix du Grand Jard
Our house Claret. Can't get better value than this for a properly made organically farmed Bordeaux red wine.
"Always have a bottle in the house. Far better than anything comparable at this price."
The grapes are grown on the banks of the Gironde Estuary, opposite Saint Estephe and Pauillac. The family have been making wine for over a century and use traditional, low intervention methods to achieve this timeless classic. Hand harvests with de-stemming, cold pre-fermentation maceration and no oak.
Warm ruby red colour with a ripe red berry and truffle nose. Round, well-balanced and full of cherry, ripe berries, truffles and a hint of smoke. Long, smooth, harmonious finish.
