(From 2011 Vintage) 87-90 points Wine Spectator Ripe, slightly extracted in feel with a taut plum skin edge running from start to finish, along with crushed cherry and blackberry fruit. A good tobacco note wafts through the finish. (Web-2012) James Suckling Pretty aromas of blackberries and dried orange peel. Full and soft textured. Full to medium body, with velvety tannins and a bright finish... (4/ 2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate From the talented Jean-Philippe Janoueix, the 2011 Croix-Mouton over-delivers in flavor intensity, body and richness. For a Bordeaux Superieur it possesses an atypically dark ruby color as well as a chunky, fleshy bouquet of red and black fruits, spice box and earth. Drink this medium-bodied effort over the next 4-5 years. (4/ 2014)
