Domaine La Croix Belle is situated in the lesser-known Cotes de Thongue region of the Languedoc. The estate has been successfully handed down from father to son for over two centuries. When Francoise and Jacques Boyer took control in 1977 they replanted all the vines, introduced modern vinification methods and lowered yields. By developing the estate in this way and holding close to their hearts all the lessons learnt by previous generations, they drove the quality of the wine up and up.
The estate is set in the foothills of the Montagne Noire on great wine producing soils – mostly gravels and pebbles.
The estate has picked up a number of ‘great value’ awards from renowned publications such as Wine Spectator and Decanter.
