Estimated full landed price – $26.16

Chateau Croix Mouton was purchased by Jean-Philippe Janoueix in 1997. At the time of the purchase, the estate and vineyards were in poor condition, as the previous owner had abandoned the vineyards. Starting in 1998, extensive renovations on all the winemaking facilities and work in the vineyards began taking place.

Chateau Croix-Mouton is a serious candidate for one of the best Bordeaux wine value producers today. The Chateau is located not far from the Fronsac appellation, close to the Dordogne river.

Revealing elegant aromas of mulberries, dark wild berries and spices, the 2023 Croix Mouton is medium-bodied, charming and enveloping with a succulent mid-palate that segues into an elegant, taut finish. This blend of 80% Merlot and the rest of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot is a terrific effort.
