Dom du Cros Marcillac 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Domaine du Cros, with its 22 hectares, is the largest independent producer in the appellation and Philippe Teulier and his family have been instrumental in reestablishing the reputation of Marcillac's wines. Philippe Teulier's vines lie at elevations as high as 450 meters on a few different hillsides that surround the village of Clairvaux. Much of his vineyard is terraced and the soil is an iron rich clay known locally as 'rougier' with outcroppings of limestone. His wines are made from one grape type, the local grape of Marcillac, Fer Servadou. The Cuvee Vieilles Vignes is made from a parcel of vines that is over 80 years of age." "The appellation of Marcillac is found in the western part of Auvergne, nestled in the mountain range known as the Massif Central. The vineyards lie along steep slopes in a remote valley that offers a beneficial micro-climate. The valley draws warm and dry air from the Mediterranean during the summer and fall and also shelters the vineyards from the harsh winters. The history of the vineyards is closely aligned with the Abbaye at Conques whose monks recognized the valley’s potential and planted vineyards in the area beginning in the 10th century." -Importer
