Located in the Libourne area on a sandy clay plateau overlooking the right bank of the “Isle” river, the vineyard produces wines in AOC Fronsac, Bordeaux Supérieur, Bordeaux Red and Bordeaux White. Recently acquired by the team of Château Monlot, a rising star in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation, Château La Croix de Roche now has a brilliant future ahead of itself and will enjoy the “savoir-faire” and the delicate care provided by the team that successfully undertook the complete reconstruction and modernization of Monlot’s cellars and facilities. The 20 hectares of vines are managed in certified organic farming.
Tasting Note: Chateau La Croix de Roche, Bordeaux Superieur AOC is a blend of Merlot, Carmenere, Petit Verdot and Malbec. The berries grow in the vineyards of the farm in the appellation of Bordeaux Superior. Harvesting and sorting are done manually. Traditional fermentation at a controlled temperature and maceration took a total of about three weeks. Wine aging began in oak barrels (12 months) and continued in vats (another 6 months). Wine matches perfectly with red meat and most cheeses.
