Sainte Croix du Mont faces Sauternes on the slopes of the opposite bank of the river. Next to Loupiac and facing Sauternes and Barsac, this AOC occupies a strategic location for producing fine Bordeaux dessert wines, where the Garonne and Ciron rivers meet. Sainte-Croix-du-Mont, 50 km southwest of Bordeaux, is a magnificent village perched on a hillside that overlooks the river.
The Sainte-Croix-du-Mont captivate with their aromas of raisins, fig, acacia, honeysuckle, apricot and peach.
In the mouth, they are livelier than their neighbour and have a more airy and expansive side. They are powerful, complex and intense with a long finish. As with all great dessert wines of the region, they have a good potential for aging.
