Domaine de La Croix Cru Classé 2018

€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 rose-pink colored Cru Classé de Provence is a truly lovely wine. Its delicately floral nose exudes notes of wild strawberry with an almost minty character. On the palate, the roundness and fruitiness of this wine are a real treat. The finish brings a pleasant bitterness and nice persistence of flavor.
