See Decanter’s expert rating, tasting notes and drinking window for Domaine Lucien Crochet, La Croix du Roy 2010
A mix of several old-vine parcels in Bué (of which Crochet is the biggest land owner) with 60% aged in barrels for a year then blended and matured in tank before bottling. Beautiful richness and purity. Savoury, earthy note and ripe berry fruit. Very good.
