Château La Croix des Pins lies between Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail, in an area of the Southern Rhône classified as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The estate dates back to the 16th century when the local branch of papal government had headquarters in Carpentras. The domaine has vineyards in the Ventoux, Gigondas and Beaumes-de-Venise appellations, along with owning Domaine des Nymphes in Rasteau. They also bottle negociant wines under the Latitude label.
In 1998, the estate was one of the first of the region to be fully certified organic and in 2010 a new team led by Jean-Pierre Valade assumed control, with an ambitious brief to raise the wine quality and profile of the estate. Since then, the vineyard has been overhauled with new vineyards planted, while inside a new barrel room was installed and alongside the facilities to carry out multiple vinifications of individual parcels. We're excited to bring a wide range of their wines to the UK, such as the elegant, deep Gigondas Les Dessous des Dentelles as well as both Domaine des Nymphes and their Latitude Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise.
