The estate has been in the same family since 1780 and they’re rightly proud off their traditionally produced wines. The grapes are picked by hand from 30 year old vines; the estate achieved organic certification in 2012.
Grape blend: Grenache 80%, Syrah 10%, Mourvèdre 10%.

It's a supple and rich wine with a long finish.

Sheltered from the wind named "Mistral" by the Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail, the vineyard grows in a natural biosphere reserve classified by UNESCO. Fed by sublime spaces size, the clay- limestone here exalts the benefits of a single typical Provence. The Château de la Croix des Pins was one of the first areas to obtain the "BIO" label in 1998.
The vineyard is located between 300 and 350 metres of altitude in the heart of the Dentelles de Montmirail, this admirable mountain finely sculpted by erosion. It looks like majestic stonet lace. A real sculpture reaching a heigh of 755 metres. The soils are made of stony clay alluvium
