Château La Croix Romane Lalande-de-Pomerol 2014

24.00

Description

Located on the right bank of the Dordogne, only 2 km from the famous Pomerol plateau, Château La Croix Romane was named by the Dubard family in honour of the 12th century Romanesque church of Lalande de Pomerol, close to the estate.

Situated on a fabulous gravelly mound containing 10% of clay soils and carefully selected from 25 year old vines this 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon blend sees 12 to 18 months ageing in French oak barrels resulting in a structured, blackberry scented, supple and gently spiced dark fruit wine, with firm supportive tannins.

Producer: Vignobles Dubard

Vignobles Dubard is the second generation family operation of Gregory and Marine Dubard, located in Bergerac, just east of Bordeaux and the Durdogne river. The homestead, Château Laulerie, is a 19th century stone farm surrounded by the original livestock buildings. The estate comprises 85 hectares of vines with Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Malbec dominating plantings. Soil-type here is almost identical to that of neighbouring Saint-Émilion but land, and subsequently wine here, is much more favourably priced.
Both graduated winemakers, Gregory and Marine first gained experience in St Chinian and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, traveling further afield to gain experience in Italy and New Zealand, and finally closer to home in Pomerol. They arrived back at Château Laulerie in 2009 determined to tell a story about their Bergerac terroir through fabulous wines with contemporary branding. We think they've done a rather splendid job so far.
