Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

It was surprising to find a hint of herbs in this 2009 Pauillac, but despite its progress over recent years, this classified growth can’t seem to get over the top. Attractive, elegant, crunchy, red and black currant notes emerge from this medium-bodied, dark ruby/purple-colored effort. Drink it over the next 15 years. (Tasted once.)

Product Description:

Lying on Pauillac’s Bages plateau, between the town of Pauillac itself and Saint-Julien-Beychevelle, Château Croizet-Bages also takes its name from its original creators, the Croizet brothers. One a court clerk, the other a local lawyer, the two men bought up parcels of vines from their neighbours duirng the first half of the 18th century and created their own successful vineyard. At the time of the Revolution, and much involved in local government, the brothers sold the estate to a family from Gascony, the Puyteracs, who in turn sold it to a Bordelais, Jean Calvé, just two years before the 1855 classification of the Médoc. The current proprietors, the Quié family, acquired Croizet-Bages in 1942 from American entrepreneur Jean-Baptiste Monnot (he bought the struggling estate at the end of WW1). The Château is today managed by brother and sister team Jean-Philippe and Anne-Françoise Quié.
