Bordeaux Pomerol wines are rich, decadent reds, with notes of chocolate, dark cherry, plums and spice, soft tannins and elegance courtesy of the Merlot grape.
The vineyards of this historic property date back to the sixteenth century. Le Prieuré is the second label of Château La Croix, an estate that has been in the Janoueix family for over 150 years.
This a generous wine with plenty of intense dark fruit flavour and luscious, supple tannins that dance on the tongue. After the rainy weather of winter and spring, a beautiful summer allowed for a harvest under excellent conditions.
Due to the particularity of the clay and limestone soils of Chateau Le Prieure vineyard, it was spared by the water stress, resulting in grapes with fantastic alcoholic potential, phenolic richness, and a balanced acidity.
