Château La Croix-Davids

Anecdotes about the domain

The history of La Croix-Davids could be summed up in a few words: work, humility, determination... But it is a much more complex story that leads me today to perpetuate the work of my ancestors in a logic of maintaining a know-how, and respect for a homogeneous terroir, unchanging over the years. My project was born from the desire to put into dialogue the technological advances of a modern world and the intrinsic requirements of viticulture.

The domain's short story

Château La Croix-Davids was bought by the Cavignac-Birot family, the current owners, at the end of the French revolution. It is therefore many winegrowers who preceded Annie Birot-Meneuvrier and who have been able to transmit the ancestral know-how accumulated over the generations. Today, Louis Meneuvrier cultivates the vineyard with a tradition of quality, without sacrificing anything to the myth of technology. This vineyard is typical of the Côtes de Bourg appellation.

The winemaker's pride

Château La Croix-Davids has its vines planted on one of the highest plateaus of the appellation, on a clay-limestone soil. Because of its good exposure, the estate benefits from an exceptional amount of sunshine. The average age of the vineyard is 50 years. The wine making is done in a traditional way with a long maceration (about 3 weeks) allowing to extract a maximum of tannins and fruits. The wines are aged in barrels. The grape varieties of the vineyard are predominantly Merlot, associated with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec.
