Located near Bézier, in the south west of France, La Croix Belle produces a wide range of wines, from refreshing rosé to drink during their youth to complex and elegant red with aging potential. Impressive by its size the vineyard expends a little over 100ha all around the village of Puissalicon on clay-limestone, gravels, silts and pebbles rich soils. The strength and depth of the wines are largely the expression of the specificities of the region. The harmonious, balanced and elegant wines of La Croix Belle, recognized by many French and international experts, are the results of the hardwork of the winemakers, Jacques and Francoise Boyer, to transform and improve the estate for the last 40 years. Indeed in 1977, already convinced by the great potential of the region, Jacques and Francoise Boyer did not just continued driving the family business, but chose to transform it through a profound qualitative approach. This was reflected first by a complete renewal of the vineyard -in terms of grape varietal and density of plantation,- the improvement of vine growing techniques and a drastic reduction of the average yield in order to harvest healthy and concentrated grapes. Nowadays, the estate has gone further into its search for quality and is activiely protecting its environment. Following the rules of Terra-Vitis (lutte raisonnée) Mrs and Mr Boyer have dedicated part of the vineyard to recycling and purifying water thanks to a bamboo based
self-sufficient eco-system and have also divided by half their use of suphites. A very dynamic winery indeed!
