Chateau La Croix du Duc

This small estate located on the border of the city of Lussac St Emilion on a picturesque south facing clay silt soil hill, has been in the hands of the Chollet family since 1865. Partly aged in oak barrels, this blend of carefully-tended and ripe Merlot (90%), Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon is full bodied yet supple with plenty of sweet jammy black fruit on the nose, and a very well balanced mouth feel ending in a delicate oaky finish.
