Château la Croix St Georges
Run by Jean-Philippe Janoueix, Château La Croix Saint Georges' wine stands out by its exceptional mellowness and its great fineness.
A sculpture on one of the cellars representing Saint-Georges fighting from horseback reminds that this domain used to belong to the chivalrous order of the charitable of Saint-Jean-de-Jerusalem.
The vineyard of the Château La Croix Saint-Georges is located between Vieux Château Certan, Petit Village and Le Pin.
Chateau la Croix St Georges 2003
"This serious property is run by young Jean-Philippe Janoueix. Although the 2003 is not up to the standards of the 2004, 2001, or 2000, this dark ruby/purple-tinged effort offers spicy, herbal characteristics interwoven with notions of new oak, white chocolate, and cherries. this full-bodied, opulent, rich wine seems to just be entering its window of full maturity. Very impressive. Medium-bodied, narrowly constructed, and moderately tannic, it will drink well for 7-8 years." - Rated 88, Robert Parker
"Soft and balanced with medium body and a delicious plummy, berry aftertaste. Medium tannins. –JS" - Rated 85-88, Wine Spectator
