One of the brilliant wines from the talented Jean-Philippe Janoueix this tiny 13.5-acre vineyard near Le Pin and Vieux-Chateau-Certan was cropped at 32 hectoliters per hectare. At 13.6% alcohol it's no wimpy wine and the final blend was 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. One of Pomerol's more reasonably priced offerings the 2011 La Croix Saint-Georges reveals a dense purple color along with a sweet bouquet of melted chocolate toasty oak blackberries and cedar. Full-bodied with outstanding ripeness a supple texture decent acidity and well-integrated tannin it should drink well for 10-15 years.

Full and velvety with soft tannins and a juicy fruit character. Milk chocolate minerals and spices. Lovely wine.

Anticipated final blend of 88%-94% merlot with the remainder cabernet franc. Located on the same plateau as Le Pin Vieux Chateau Certan and Petit Village gravelly soils dominate with small amounts of clay. Average vine age is 37+ years. Aged in 67% new and 33% one-year-old barrels. Deep garnet color. Although a small percentage in the final blend the cabernet franc makes itself known with herbal aromas while the merlot reveals blackberry and blueberry flavors along with a hint of tapenade and licorice. Tasting the 2011 barrel sample indicates gentle extraction the key for 2011. Though this is supple and silky the plentiful tannins need time to mellow. Enjoy 2018-2030.
