Famille Cruse

One word to describe my wine
Charming and warm

The history of the Château
The domain's history goes back to the Middle Age. It's in 1896 that Henri Cruse bought it. Since 5 generations,the estate has been a family property. The château's nicely balanced façades are XVIIIth century, as the alterpiece which closes the long patio. The old cellar, which is very unusual, with its basement and double arches, was built in the XVIth century. All these buildings are French national monuments.

Food pairings for my wine
