Chateau La Croix Bonneau

Chateau La Croix Bonneau Logo

Chateau La Croix Bonneau is a modest property of 4 hectares in Montagne, the village just to the north of Saint-Emilion. It was bought in 2005 by Eric Salmon and his family, and from the outset their aim was to improve quality in the small vineyard and cellar. The clay soil of the Montagne Saint-Emilion appellation gives generous fruit wines which tend to be more forward in their youth than those from Saint-Emilion. Eric capitalised on this generosity and reduced yields to increase ripeness even more.
