Château La Croix de Pez, Saint-Estèphe, 2016

$25.99

James Suckling 93/00: “This is very powerful and rich with gorgeous depth and intensity. Full and excellent. Another new name to watch. Some coffee and caramel here, but also plenty of blackberries and a generous slug of moderately dry tannins, making this a bold wine, yet easy to drink. Lively, dry finish. Drink or hold.”
