    Winemaker's Notes:

    Chateau Les Trois Croix, the privately owned estate of the Patrick Leon Family is located on Fronsac's highest hill, close to Saint-Emilion & Pomerol. The chalk and clay soil provides the perfect environment for the grape varieties which produce this outstanding wine. Les Trois Croix is named after the three crosses on the pilgrimage site of a nearby 12th century church. Berfore retiring to assist his son Bertrand, Patrick Leon worked as wine master at such celebrated firms & wineries as Alexis Lichine, Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Opus One and Almaviva.

    Good balance and ripe fruit freshness in the mouth, with good tannins that are noticeable but round and creamy. A great, classic Bordeaux Vintage.

    Blend: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    A solid, mouthfilling, slightly gutsy style, with briary grip carrying the blackberry, fig and espresso notes, all laced with hints of dark olive and bittersweet ganache. Taut tannins on the finish will need ot soften in the cellar. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2015.
