2011 CH CROIX DU RIVAL, Lussac St Emilion (12 bottles)
Red | Full-bodied | Dark Fruit | Rich
Inside track from an old contact and Bordeaux trade titan who's probably drank more fine claret than Robert M. Parker Jr. From the lauded Comtes von Neipperg stable, which includes such stars as Ch Canon La Gaffeliere & La Mondotte, we bring you this fabulous Right Bank Bordeaux punching considerably above its weight. Early riders have suggested to us that this drinks more like a £50 wine and we're delighted to be offering it at the best price on the global market.
100% Merlot from old vines averaging 50+ years. Very pure on the nose with blackcurrants, berries and violet notes. Driving palate of great verve and fruit concentration, finishing long with a hint of black truffle. Gorgeous, in a word.
