CHATEAU LA CROIX DES LAMBERTS - Bordeaux/France
Bernard Grimard is the 4th generation of his family to run this 13 hectare estate, which is located on the limestone and clay slopes overlooking the Gironde across from Margaux.
Cabernet dominates the blend (70%) with a good proportion of Merlot (20%), and a lick of Malbec (10%).
A good deep ruby colour with notes of plum, cherry and cassis on the nose.
The fruit on the palate is nicely concentrated with blackberry, dark cherry and hints of violet coming through, and structured by gentle tannins.
