A good density of ripe, sweet fruit without being overbearing with a happy-to-meet-you, open, easy, black cherry character. It has a good balance of acidity and fine-grained tannins, with a roundness to the finish. Maturity: 2020 – 2028

91-93 Points, Neal Martin: “The 2015 Les Cruzelles is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc on gravel/clayey soil, picked from September 15-22 and October 6 respectively, then matured in 45% new oak. The new wood is seamlessly integrated into this Lalande-de-Pomerol, more broody and introspective than the La Chenade at the moment, but very well defined. The palate is beautifully proportioned with crisp tannin, a fine line of acidity, somehow gentle and understated on the finish, but very long in the mouth. Yet another ridiculously fine wine to load up on, courtesy of Denis Durantou.”
