Chateau la Croix du Casse

Chateau la Croix du Casse

Château La Croix du Casse was for many years owned and administered by Jean-Michel Arcaute, who also owned Chateau Jonqueyres and world famous Chateau Clinet. He was one of Bordeaux`s true innovators and propelled Croix du Casse into the front line of Pomerol properties.

La Croix du Casse consists of 9 hectares of vines (80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc), located close to the railway line at the southern end of the appellation.

La Croix du Casse's wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and is then aged in oak barriques, 50% of which are new, for 24 months. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered. La Croix du Casse's produces plummy, voluptuously rich Pomerols that ooze sweet, black fruits, herbs, coffee and sometimes dark chocolate accompanied by smoky vanilla oak notes. Irresistible while young but they will continue improving for a decade or so.

Jean-Michel Arcaute was tragically killed in a boating accident in 2001.
