Croix du Casse

2016 Croix du Casse

www.lacroixducasse.com

Picked 10 October and 13 October from the Merlot and Cabernet Franc respectively, the 2016 La Croix du Casse has an intense bouquet with blackberry and boysneberry fruit that just needs to manifest a little more finesse. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin on the entry, decent fruit although I find that the 40% new oak (actually 50% in my barrel sample) does not quite meld with the tannins as well as I hoped and leaves the finish a little raw

Score: 86-88                      Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com (230)
