Château La Croizille 2008
Tasting Notes: This great wine which is almost as black as printer’s ink has an overwhelming nose of black fruit with a roasted touch; it is rich, complex and juicy and impresses by its harmony between the large, but supple texture, the fine tannins and the intense and pleasant flavours. Will age well into 8 to 15 years.
