The 2014 Les Cruzelles has a simple bouquet, tertiary in style, woodland scents intermixed and perhaps dominating the fruit underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannin, chewy in the mouth at first although it musters more detail towards the lightly spiced, quite saline finish. Like other Pomerol wines it just needs another three or four years in the glass. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. -- Neal Martin

The blueberry, chocolate and walnut aromas are compelling. Medium to full body, ripe and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Better in 2020 but already a joy to taste and even drink.

The 2014 Les Cruzelles is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc picked between 24-29 September. It has a little more ripeness on the nose compared to the La Chenade, very perfumed with subtle violet and iris aromas, later a hint of orange blossom. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin with ample blackberry and bilberry; grainy in texture with a pleasurable marine/oyster shell element lending personality on the finish. This is very fine. - Neal Martin

Very suave, with creamy plum sauce and blackberry confiture notes inlaid with ganache and anise details, all flowing through the toasty yet integrated and refined finish. Wins on mouthfeel and fruit, but there's a fine mineral edge as well. Drink now through 2022. 2,135 cases made. –JM

The bouquet is intense and fruit driven with ripe red berries, blueberry and cherry mixed with wet tobacco, peppercorn, vanilla and freshly churned earth. Soft and approachable on the palate with medium body, silky tannins round out the finish. Drink now through 2025.
