Château la Croix de Roche 2016
This subtly blended claret has layers of complexity and a soft, smooth finish.
AOP Bordeaux supérieur
Carmenère, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot
What we say
This biodynamic producer is creating wines that punch well above their price. A blend of Malbec, Carmenere, Petit Verdot and Merlot gives this wine concentrated flavours of leather, spice and savoury tones. The long finish lends itself perfectly to roasted lamb or beef dishes.
What they say
A complex, smoky wine, packed with blackfruit and liqourice.
