The Domain: Château Croix de Labrie is a 5,1672 ha estate located in the heart of the AOC Saint-Emilion Classified Grand Cru, an appellation that inevitably brings to mind Burgundy with its mosaic of plots and producers.

The vineyard is worked by Axelle Courdurié from pruning to harvest, from vinification to bottling. A talented winegrower and very attentive to detail, Axelle also brings her feminine sensibility to the wines of Croix de Labrie.

The plots are located on the so-called places: Badon (next to Pavie), Le Cateau in Saint Sulpice (next to the first plot of Valandraud), and in Saint Christophe Des Bardes next to our cellar (dating from 1687). The Badon terroir is composed of limestone sand and clay with a clay-limestone subsoil and iron grim. This draining, very fine terroir brings finesse. The plot of Le Cateau is composed of gravels with clays which bring more depth and density. Finally the plots of Saint Christophe Des Bardes, on the plateau, places called Peymouton, Rocheyron, Echeres, characterized by a clay-limestone soil with asteries, bringing complexity and density. The property's main grape variety is Merlot but there are also Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
