Domaine des Croix
David Croix is a young Beaunois vigneron making a style of wine I really enjoy: elegant, pure, organically focussed and full of character. Impressively, he runs his own boutique domaine, Domaine des Croix, whilst at the same time he is head wine maker at Maison Camille Giroud. This means that while many wine makers produce a few different wines each year, David is making upwards of 25 wines.
Domaine des Croix is young, only caming into being in 2005 when David and some private investors bought Domaine Duchet. The domaine has been organic since 2008. The holdings focus around Beaune with a interesting parcel of Corton-Charlemagne just to the north. The style, however, is Côte de Nuits and that appears to be the direction in which David is looking.
