Owned by brothers Yves and Hugues Ricome for over 30 years, Domaine La Croix Gratiot covers 27 hectares in Montagnac in the Coteaux du Languedoc. After years of selling to the local co-operative, Yves started bottling his own wine in 2005. His daughter Anaïs has now taken charge, after working for some time in New Zealand.
The Rouge Cerise boasts notes of ripe cherry fruit and hints of black pepper on the nose. On the palate, the tannins are smooth, well-balanced with fresh acidity and seasoned with subtle notes of toast and sweet spice from the oak.
