Château PLANTEY DE LA CROIX
Château PLANTEY DE LA CROix
The word « Plantey » has a long history. In the late 17th century, wheat and rye were the most common crops. Wine became more popular during the « beverage revolution » towards the end of the 18th century when it became the modern wine we are familiar with today. After the end of the wars and embargoes, Bordeaux exported macerated wines. Winegrowers therefore had to produce more, and economic success led to new plantations in all winemaking areas, named “planteys”, or young plantations.
This wine is a blend of the youngest Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines at Verdignan. It is fresh and well-rounded, with supple tannins allowing it to be enjoyed after 3 to 8 years of ageing.
