The finest Croizet Bages I have tasted and, along with the 2009, a sure sign that this property is finally re-emerging after decades of mediocrity. Deep ruby/plum/purple, with a classic nose of black currants, cedar, Christmas fruitcake and licorice, this wine is flavorful, savory medium to full-bodied, with silky tannin. This is one of the last classified growths to get its act together, and kudos to them. Anticipated maturity: now-2028. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, the Croizet-Bages has a rather muted, tobacco and sous-bois dominated nose, sans the precocity that the vintage offered. The palate is better, demonstrating more fruit intensity. A firm structure, tannic and gritty with cedar and graphite-laced black fruit towards the finish, hopefully this Croizet-Bages will round out during elevage. Tasted April 2011.

A young wine, with a pretty core of ripe fruit and silky tannins. Full body, chewy, yet cashmere in texture. Lacks a tiny bit on the finish. But nicely done. jamessuckling.com

Light, aromatic but is this 100% clean? Dense and very ripe. Very drying tannins on the end. Far from charming. jancisrobinson.com

There are very juicy fresh berry flavours which jump out from the glass. The tannins provide a great framework of firm rich tannins. Delightful fruit flavours on the mid palate with vibrancy and good depth. Fairly long finish. asianpalate.com

80CS 17N 3CF A sweet if superficial nose. Quite nice creamy fruit. Not so bad at all this year, with rather nice fruit at the end.
