LA CROIX BELLE
"We are at the service of nature, it is she who says what to do, when to do it, how to do it. Our treasure is our terroir, our vines. We are here to pass on happy vines that our ancestors passed on to us."
Just outside the city of Montpellier lie the vineyards of La Croix Belle, a family owned and operated Domaine that traces it roots in the region through more than two centuries.
In 1977, already convinced of the region’s rich terroir, Jacques and Françoise Boyer were not content to only pursue operation of the family wine estate, but to make a radical shift to strive for quality above all. The first step called for replanting the vineyard, continually improving the winegrowing techniques inherited from earlier generations, and seriously reducing yield to harvest healthy, concentrated grapes for wines with character.
