2012 Chateau Croizet Bages
Tasted at Château Rauzan-Gassies. The 2012 Croizet Bages, a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc, is a little light on the nose in the same fashion as the previous vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, pretty blackberry and raspberry fruit mixed with autumn leaves and a dash of white pepper, the finish a little conservative but with decent length. Tasted June 2015.
