Château La Croix

A brief history

Sacré Coeur is produced from a miniature 1.5 hectare plot on the magnificent terroir of Château La Croix, the Janoeuix family’s Pomerol estate. Lying just a few metres from Château La Croix Saint Georges, the soil is a mixture of fine gravel and sand. This combination favours both excellent ripeness and great complexity in the grapes. Our friendly neighbours in this prestigious appellation include Château Le Pin, Pétrus and Petit Village.

The small flagship appellation of the right bank, Pomerol and its 792 hectares have never allowed for any classification. The wines, which have a majority of Merlot, fascinate those who taste them and are sought after for their characteristic elegance. The soils are fast-draining, composed of gravel and fine clay upon which we have planted vines of at an unusually high density of up to 12,000 plants per hectare. This allows the terroir to reveal its full potential.
