Made from Syrah and Grenache Noir grown on steep slopes, cultivated in terraces exposed to the north. Harvested manually, giving, after a passage in barrels, a great complex wine, delicate, floral, full of freshness and minerals.
An ex-rugby player, Pierre Cros is known as the King of Concentration – so, unsurprisingly, his wines are full-bodied and entirely superb! Les Aspres regularly wins the coveted three-star award from Guide Hachette, and Pierre also produces a stunning red wine made with Carignan grapes.
Some of his vines were planted as far back as 1905, and the results are no less than historic - lookout, in particular, for the aptly named red Vieilles Vignes, and the highly recommended Minervois Tradition red, made with 5 different grapes.
