Chateau La Croix de Moines
Chateau La Croix de Moines is located in the heart of the Lalande de Pomerol appellation of Bordeaux.
It has been owned by Jean-Louis Trocard since 1976, whose family has owned vineyards in Bordeaux since the 16th century.
The property consists of 8 hectares of vineyards planted with the majority being Merlot, with smaller amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
The vineyards are ideally sited and lie on deep gravelly topsoil with iron pan in the subsoil.
The grapes are hand-harvested and the wines are matured in oak barrels for 14 months.
This is one of the best properties in the Lalande de Pomerol appellation which offers some of the best value wines to be found in Bordeaux today.
