Château Croix de Bern - Cuvée Julien

photo bouteille

Our wines made from Merlot and Cabernet benefit from a privileged exposure, a soil with a structure particularly suited to developing consistently high-quality red wines with good ageing potential, which distinguish themselves by their texture, delicate aromas and great smoothness.
The Château Croix de Bern is aged in oak barrels to acquire hints of vanilla, pepper, while exhibiting woody tannins with a long richly flavoured finish. These wines will keep and provide consistent quality over the years.
