About This Wine:
A frost that hit at an inopportune time resulted in a significantly lower output from the grapevines, which naturally led to less production at the wine estates. Yet among those estates that were able to bring in a sufficient amount of fruit, the resulting wines have really good extraction — which bodes well for the vintage, if not the quantities that will be available.
As a delicious example, we offer the 2017 La Croix d’Argent, a Merlot-based cuvee of moderate ripeness that shows a touch of sweetness as it enters the mouth, with a nice savory note in the mid-palate. Among the early releases of 2017-vintage Bordeaux reds, this is certainly among the best.
The wines of Bordeaux are always special, and the 2017 La Croix d'Argent demonstrates that even an ill-timed frost can’t prevent the appellation’s talented vintners from crafting world-class wines.
