The producer

La Croix St George was first acquired by the Janoueix family in 1932, but the modern era of the estate starts in 1999, when Jean Philippe Janoueix takes over the running of the estate and makes investments in improved winemaking facilities and cellar.

4.2 hectares of vineyards are situated between Vieux Chateau Certain and Le Pin, on the Pomerol plateau, and planted with 91% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc. The wine matures for around 20 months in 100% new French oak barrels.

This is very good Bordeaux at an agreeable price.

The wine

Grapes for La Croix St George are sourced from, on average, 41-year-old vines on the central Pomerol plateau. The blend varies with vintage conditions but usually comprises up to 95% Merlot, complemented with Cabernet Franc. Fermentation takes place in open top vats and is followed by malolactic and ageing in between 50-100% new oak. An aromatically complex, concentrated, and seductive wine, La Croix St George is very good Bordeaux at an agreeable price.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
