Château La Croix St-Estèphe 2018

A veritable vintage of extremes, the weather in 2018 allowed each plot to reach optimal ripeness to reveal wines of both impressive structure and beautiful aromatic potential.
Although winter was quite wet and spring required vigilance, the rest of the year enjoyed favorable conditions.
A hot summer with regular temperatures was followed by ideal weather in autumn to kick off the harvest. The vine prevailed, once again demonstrating the magic of Bordeaux… This  solar vintage is above all synonymous with elegance and balance.
