Located in the top most appellation of the Medoc in Saint Estephe, Croix de Pez is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc on gravelly clay soils. A fruity nose is followed by round tannins and soft fruit flavors on the long finish.
Pez means “peace” in Old French and is still commonly used in Saint-Estèphe. This peaceful haven is a Garden of Eden for making great wines.
WINEMAKING AND AGEING

ageing, rich in tannins, this takes 3 to 4 weeks.
