Bordeaux, in the southwest of France, needs little introduction as one of the world’s most famous, prestigious and prolific wine regions. The 20 hectares of Château La Grand Croix are situated in the beautiful hills of the Dordogne Valley, home to such famous appellations as St. Emilion and Pomerol.

The success of Bordeaux can be boiled down to one simple trait: its location. Serving as a major port city for centuries, accessible from the Gironde estuary that feeds into the Atlantic Ocean, Bordeaux’s wineries have traditionally had access to global markets and many a visitor. Unlike Burgundy, another famous wine region that is essentially landlocked, Bordeaux was able to capitalize on the ships and wealthy merchants that filled its port daily, always sending them off with wine.

Merlot is the most planted red wine grape in the vineyards of Bordeaux, accounting for around 65% of all vines, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon and then Cabernet Franc. This wine is a classic blend of those 3 classic grapes: 45 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 30 %Cabernet Franc, 25 % Merlot.

An attractive medium to deep ruby colour, this wine has the ripeness and vitality of the famous 2015 vintage. On the nose, you’ll find fairly ripe, herbaceous blackcurrant and red plum fruit. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied with the savoury moderate tannic structure, lifting acidity and mix of red and black fruits you’d expect of this enticing blend. A classic expression of a typical Bordeaux!

La Grand Croix winery is owned by the Greiller Family, who have been growing grapes and producing wine on the property for many generations. Michel Greiller, the current head of the family estate, continues the tradition of minimal interference with the vines, and restricting yields so as to produce the highest quality grapes possible.

La Grand Croix is symbolic of the Bordeaux classic style. Thisfamily-owned winery uses traditional techniques, with a great respect to nature and low impact on the environment; producing wines that are sure to bring delight to many generations to come and which represent especially good value.
