Presentation of the vineyard
Domaine la Croix Belle is a family vineyard since 200 years, located in the small village of Puissalicon 10-15 km north of the town of Béziers. Today it's Jacques et Françoise Boyer who own and control the winery. Already in 1977, they made the decision not only to take over in the footsteps of the ancestors, but also to focus on quality. This meant planting of new grape varieties and vines, improvement and development of the ancestral cultivation technology, and a significantly lower extract from the press. A larger and improved wine cellar was also included in the novelties.
