Known as Alias Croizet-Bages, the name itself, derived from Latin, signifies 'otherwise known.' This distinctive wine primarily originates from the estate's young vine selection, cultivated for the purpose of producing the premier wine in upcoming years.
The blend of Alias Croizet-Bages is subject to variation, influenced by the latest plantings and the unique characteristics of each vintage. Capturing the refined essence of Pauillac, Alias Croizet-Bages exudes the allure of a vibrant, indulgent, and precisely crafted fruit profile. As the estate's second wine, it gracefully embodies the distinctive characteristics of the primary wine, presenting delightful aromas of cherry and cedarwood on a meticulously managed tannic structure.
Vinified with the same meticulous attention as the flagship wine, Alias Croizet-Bages undergoes a 12 to 14-month aging process in French oak barrels. The subtle elegance of its label serves as a visual representation of the property's modern facilities, offering a glimpse into the future of Château Croizet-Bages.
" Clear ambition and precision here, this has extremely tight tannins, pencil lead, graphite, bitter chocolate and cocoa bean. Austere and a long way from being ready to go, this needs time and patience."
"Blackberries, black olives, dried herbs, oyster shells and some tar. It’s full-bodied with sleek, well integrated tannins. Nice chewiness. Plenty of savory notes here with a fresh finish. Second wine of Croizet-Bages. Try from 2022."
