Overview of the Wine
Created by Etienne Grangeon 70 years ago, the property originally comprised 2 hectares of Grenache. It was developed further by the driving force of his son Alain, who joined the domaine in 1963. Passionate about viticulture, he notably contributed to the expansion of the domaine and planted improved grape varieties such as Syrah and Mourvèdre and created the identity of Cristia, based on the knowledge and respect of his soils.

Then, in 1999, Baptiste, Dominique and more recently Florent joined their father. Their priorities were to concentrate on selecting the best parcels in order to produce a wine of a great quality with a good ageing potential.

100% Grenache

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Deep red-cherry color. The nose is harmonious mixing floral and fruit aromas with a touch of licorice. The attack is balanced and lively, the tannins powerful and ripe. Long intense fruit and aromatic finish.
