Domaine de La Croix Cru Classé 2019

€670 Flacon de 10cl

Domaine de La Croix enjoys an outstanding geographical location and micro-climate as well as an extremely varied vineyard including a fantastic plot known as Bastide Blanche. This pale goldish pink coloured Cru Classé de Provence is a truly lovely wine. The nose is delicate and floral with notes of rose and a ripe fruit character. On the palate, the wine shows beautiful tension and is deliciously fruity, while notes of spices give it an exciting finish.
