Being an integral part of the emblematic winemakers of the Languedoc for many years, Pierre Cros belongs to those who express best the character and diversity of the Languedoc through his beautiful wines. The winery is a true reference of the Minervois, led by a imaginative winemaker.
Wines of great precision
Six times elected “Coup de coeur du Guide Hachette” in the past 12 years, the Cuvée “Les Aspres” perfectly reflects the high quality standards of the Domaine and the wines. Wines that are frequently referred to by the tasters as true works of art.
"Blackcurrant, blackberry, vanilla, pepper and cinnamon. Soft, full-bodied, even sensual on the palate, this wine brings apotheosis as a seemingly endless finish. »
Well deserved eulogies that may also be applied to the Cuvée Vieilles Vignes (100% Carignan), the Mal Aimes, a table wine, made from old grape varieties (Carignan, Aramon, Picpoul Noir, Alicante), as well as to the very original wines under the label “La Liberté” (a Nebbiolo, a Touriga Nacional and a Pinot noir). All of them wines that bear witness to an accurate knowledge of the terroir.
While Pierre Cros neither claims to be the successor of generations of star winemakers, nor to belong to any « agricultural religion », he nevertheless claims to understand a little of the value of cultural legacy of our ancestors, and that he farms with respect and love.
