89 points - Wine Enthusiast - "In this Merlot-dominated wine, powerful wood flavors still show strongly against the fresh, juicy black-currant and berry fruits. As this combination ages, it will produce a ripe, full and always fruity wine with strong final acidity. Drink from 2018."

A young and intense wine. The nose, both elegant and powerful, combines candied fruit and toasted notes. Equal in intensity, the palate charms with its highly supple and smooth mouth-feel and by its beautiful roundness. It is well-structured with dense, oaky and vanillary tannins and by a long lasting finish. Pair best with hearty, flavorful and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with this wine would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.
About the Vineyard:
The 8.50 ha of Château La Croix Romane are located on the right bank of the River Dordogne, 30km from Bordeaux, just 2 km from the famous plateau of Pomerol. The sandy-gravelly soils come from former alluvial sediments containing various proportions of clay.
