Sélectionné par Mr Dupont pour le spécial vin - Le Point
2010, très grand millésime, riche en tanins et en alcool, avec une pointe d'acidité qui apporte la fraicheur.

Jean Francisco
Owner


My first wine memory
When I was a child, the aroma of the grapes during the harvest when I will walk aroung my father winery

One word to describe my wine
Voluptuous

The history of the Château
"The winery has exclusively remained family owned since 1870, and from then on, an ancestral know-how has been handed down from father to son for 5 generations. At the begenning the vineyard had only 3 ha of vines. The surface grows by successive purchases and today the vineyard covers 32 ha.The cellar is made of concrete tanks and stainless steel vats. Its storage capacity is more than 4000 hl.The cellar contains 250 French oak barrels.The Château de la Croix always cultivates and vinifies his wines himself.He is also part of the Federation of Vignerons Independants of Gironde in order to guarantee a very good quality wine and artisanal products for the consumer."

Food pairings for my wine
Gigot d'Agneau, magret de canard
