Château La Croix de Roche (Red 2016 / White 2018, Organic)
"Can I buy that Château please?" Most of us can barely buy a case without having a second thought, but actress, singer and director Vicki Zhao Wei 赵薇 has bought up four (4) vineyards in Bordeaux: Châteaux Monlot, Patarabet, Senailhac and Château La Croix de la Roche. According to former owner Isabelle Maurin, none of her family members were willing to take over the property and so when oenophile Zhao Wei came along in 2019 she was glad the property would continue to produce the organic wine it is known for such as these:
This organic wine, a blend of 60% Merlot, 15% Carmenere, 15% Petit Verdot and 10% Malbec is a favourite of many Bordeaux lovers who want a serious wine at affordable prices. Complex and well rounded with soft and fruity notes of cherry and plum, it is fine on the palate with soft ripe tannins and an elegant, longish finish.
Produced from 35% Sauvignon Blanc, 35% Sauvignon Gris & 30% Semillon, on the nose are citrus fruits and boxwood underpinned by an intense mineral structure.
