Château la Croix Davids takes full advantage of an excellent position, as its vines are on a very sunny hillside.
With origins going back to Gallo Roman days, it is graven for ever in the annals of history as a lazarist house and staging post on the pilgrims' route to St Jacques de Compostelle....
At the end of the french revolution, it was confiscated and sold to a Bordeaux notable and in 1800 it was acquired by the family which owns it to the present day.
Dider and Annie Meneuvrier have therefore absorbed the accumulated knowledge of generations, from the long line of vignerons that preceded them. Nowadays, the Meneuvriers cultivate their vineyards with a tradition of quality, making no sacrifices to technological myth. The vineyards are weeded only by ploughing, without use of chemical herbicides.
The vinification of this estate's wines are traditional here, with long maceration, (about three weeks) which gives all the fruit and tannin possible.
This is a truly great wine, typical of the Côtes de Bourg. It shows their quality in full, and indeed is one reason why the region has a high reputation.
Bottled after a year in barrel, it thus preserves all the liveliness, the colour and the crispness of the fruit.

We advise you to decant the Ch La Croix Davids wines and to enjoy them at around 19C (74F) with game, red meat and mild....
The property is on the ancient terroir of Lansac, the classic seat of Bourg wines.
The estate has offered a "cuvée Prestige", which has spent 18 months in barrel. This wine has received special care and attention allowing it to combine an elegant nose (fruit and wood) with a well built structure. It achieves harmonious balance, opening out to a long, high quality finish.
Notes de dégustation : Il peut être dégusté dans l’année, mais pourra aussi bien attendre 2 à 10 ans. Il est conseillé de le décanter environ 1 heure avant le repas. Il dévoilera alors tout son potentiel aromatique complexe et ses saveurs de pruneaux, d’épices et de fruits rouges confits. Un vin Exceptionnel !
