A picturesque location, steep hillsides overlooking the Garonne River from a height of well over 300 feet, a limestone terroir with fossilized oysters dating from the Tertiary era incorporating gravelly areas with a microclimate that lends itself to the development of botrytis.
The Sainte-Croix-du-Mont PDO joins the Loupiac and Cadillac PDOs as a clear leader among right-bank wines.
These wines come from the village of Sainte-Croix-du-Mont, the only land that can produce wines claiming this designation. The varieties used are Sémillon, Sauvignon, and Muscadelle. The wine is made in small batches according to traditional methods.
Delicate yet firm, charming and generous, the wines of Sainte-Croix-du-Mont feature the flavors of raisins and ripe fruits (peach and apricot). They are exquisite with foie gras and gourmet fish, as well as with shellfish, poultry, duck breast, certain cheeses and with fruits tart.
