Chateau Croix-Mouton is widely regarded as one of the greatest Bordeaux Superieurs of all time. This wine is almost entirely made up of Merlot grapes, which pair well with the loamy soil. Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot make up the remaining percentage of the final cuvée. The vineyards are approximately 40 years old on average, giving the wine aromatic depth and richness.
Owner Jean-Philippe Janoueix has a flair for picking the grapes at the optimal moment. So, the wine stays convenient and elegant, and you enjoy pouring more of it yourself, whether with dinner or alone.
The Croix-Mouton Bordeaux Superieur 2018 is a rich and luscious red, with notes of currant, cherry, and plum, as well as cedar and rust. It has an ABV of 13.5%, with a delicious aftertaste, robust tannins, and a full to medium body.
All forms of classic meat dishes, such as veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, and grilled dishes, go well with Chateau Croix Mouton Bordeaux Superieur. It also pairs well with Asian cuisine, as well as heavy fish dishes like tuna, mushrooms, and pasta.
