Named after the stone cross at the entrance to Château Teyssier, Lacroix is a Merlot-driven early-drinking Bordeaux Superieur from the Entre Deux Mers region. This should be served at room temperature and enjoyed on its own, alternatively, with lunch or dinner.
Lacroix 2016 comes from a vineyard located on the slopes of Butte de Launay, one of the highest point of the region between Garonne and Dordogne rivers, therefore perfectly exposed and drained.
"Another wine from Jonathan Maltus’ stable - this Merlot dominant Bordeaux blend is easy going in style with a rich and juicy dark fruited nose - black plums (slightly baked), cassis, black cherries, cedar and a hint of vanilla and earth. On the palate, it’s very straightforward and smooth with slightly more red fruits, almost like a mixed red berry compote. There is a good amount of acidity and supple tannins which brings it all together nicely. A perfect Sunday roast beef wine and one of the better Bordeaux Superieur’s I’ve tasted." Angus, Wine Guru
