Château Croizet-Bages 2008 Red (Pauillac)
A wine that seems lean, even angular at first. It does, though, have a good depth of black plum skin fruits. The finish continues the tough theme, showing that it needs several years of softening up.
Château Croizet-Bages 2010 Red (Pauillac)
This wine shows more structure than fruit at this stage. With its powerful tannins, its severity will take many years to soften. But it does have fruit in the form of a juicy blackberry note that’s accompanied by acidity. Give the rest of the fruit time to come through.
