La Croix Chaptal – Clairette du Languedoc 2016

Charles Walter Pacaud is the proud “artisan vigneron” of this domain located 30 km northwest of Montpellier, in a lovely and very touristic area. He owns 50 acres of vineyards and 25 acres of woods near a hamlet called Cambous.

The feudal estate of Cambous and the Abbeys around, were already producing wine in the 11th century!

An aged stone cellar was restored and revealed a pediment bearing the sign of the cross with a heart underneath. That is why the domain is called La Croix, which is French for the Cross.

Grapes are hand harvested, selected, destemmed and fermented on native yeasts. Only 30 % is aged in old oak barrels, the rest in vats on lees for 18 months. The wine has a bright golden color and has been recommended by several magazines like Decanter and Wine spectator.

Clairette is an ancient local variety also used for sparkling wine.
