Wine AdvocateMouton Rothschild's former administrator, Patrick Leon, owns this Fronsac estate. The 2011 reveals juicy, concentrated, ripe, floral-tinged blueberry and black raspberry fruit along with some minerality that result in an enticing, complex set of aromatics. Medium-bodied, succulent, juicy and fleshy, this is a strong effort for Les Trois Croix that qualifies as a sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. Drink Date: 2014-2022.
