The bold Southern French blend combines three grape varieties to create a seamless, sunwarmed red redolent of plums and spice.
What You Need To Know
Domaine de la Croix Ronde is part of a wave of small, quality-focused producers that transformed France’s vast Languedoc region over the last few decades into a bargain-hunter’s paradise. The combination of old vines, ambitious winemaking and under-the-radar locations—like the Haute Vallée de l’Orb, where Domaine de la Croix Ronde is located— translates into a wealth of good (and sometimes great) wines at equally good prices. Vintner Francois Pottier bought his 30-acre estate more than two decades ago. Located in the foothills of the Massif Central, its vines benefit from the region’s higher altitude, which moderates the south’s blazing summer sun.
