La Croix de Saint Jean was established in 2004 by Michel Fabre, a grape grower and winemaker (also winemaker at Villa Baulieu). Three generations of Michel’s family, his father Robert and his son Alexis, are involved in the business. The wines are aptly named the father, ‘Lo Paire’, and the child, ‘Lo Mainatge’, in Occitan to reflect this.
Dark ruby red in colour. Raspberry, elderberry and blackcurrant perfumes are complemented with hints of liquorice and eucalyptus. Full-bodied, the palate has well-integrated oak, silky tannins and a long finish.
