Product Description
Source: Winemaker,

Chateau Croix Mouton is positioned in the commune of Lugon, on the clay soils of ‘Ile de Carney’. The setting is bucolic with true rural charm, and during the harvest period we take in the early-morning sunrise over the misty Dordogne river from the winery. As the day passes, sail boats and cruisers occasionally glide past, punctuating the still calm.

Entirely Merlot driven, they are full bodied and rich in flavour, easy to drink but with finesse and a stunning display of fresh red fruit on the palate.

The ‘M’ on Chateau Croix Mouton’s label is special. It changes shape and colour each year to reflect the personality of each vintage.
