Why's this wine for you?

Here we go. Right bank Bordeaux Supérieur of remarkable quality. Château Croix Mouton was very quickly recognised by Bordeaux wine experts as being excellent value for money and is considered one of the most reliable Châteaux for consistent vintage after vintage.

Merlot is king here on the right bank of Bordeaux; the grape has the ability to produce highly complex, opulent wines of clarity and poise with a foundation of fine tannins that will see it through decades.

Located In the commune of Lugon, Château Croix Mouton has 55 hectares of prime terroir consisting of 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot with an average age of vines at 37 years old. Jean-Philippe Janoueix works every day with passion and drive to build his wines to a level that sits amongst the best of Bordeaux. Consider this a blend of blood, sweat and tears to achieve the finest of quality.

And this finesse is in the detail. Want to see something neat? Pay close attention to the ‘M’ on Château Croix Mouton’s label; it changes font and colour each year to reflect the specific unique conditions of vintage.

If you haven’t tried these wines you are missing out on world class Merlot that really can’t be topped.

The Brief
How's it taste?
What Jean-Philippe Janoueix makes of a Bordeaux Superieur Chateau Croix-Mouton is breathtaking. This wine is so powerful, dense and complex that one would never infer such a simple designation of origin. This is of course especially true for the top vintage 2016, as always an almost pure Merlot. The recipe for this wine consists of an extremely close plant density of the vines, which leads to a very low yield per vine and a correspondingly high concentration of the must, as well as the craftsmanship and precision of the winemaker. A full-bodied taste experience, it has a lot of grip, is intense and expressive, with great length, which is accompanied by structuring tannins

The 2016 Croix-Mouton is a gorgeous wine from Jean-Philippe Janoueix. Inky and plush in the glass, with terrific freshness, the 2016 is a highly representative wine for a year that produced dense but vibrant wines. Crème de cassis, chocolate, spice and new leather inform the juicy finish in this tasty, succulent Bordeaux Supérieur. Tasted three times.

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate
The 2016 Croix Mouton has an attractive, perfumed, floral bouquet with crushed violet petals infusing the ripe black cherry and cassis fruit. I appreciate the elegance on display here. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, well judged acidity, a pleasant saline and black olive note surfacing towards the fresh finish. This Bordeaux Supérieur from Jean-Philippe Janoueix can often punch above its class and the 2016 is one of those.
