At the Domaine Pierre Cros we aren’t traditional winegrowers from father to son... Although my grandfather Marius and my father Henry possessed some vineyards, they primarily were the bakers of Badens. Two men with a zest for their craft, leaving every morning, and the weather did not matter, to deliver their bread to the surrounding villages. Both taught me respect towards the customer, towards ALL customers, as well as a passion for well-done work.
Domaine Pierre Cros - Badens
At the Domaine Pierre Cros, we did not learn Oenology at school... nor did I carry out an internship with some star winegrowers. My stars, who taught me the essentials of the vigneron’s trade – weed, graft, trim, harvest – at the end of the seventies, I called “Mamie” and “Bon Papa”. For sure, both knew what they were talking about, but the best thing they passed on to me was their humbleness.

  Specialties

At the Domaine Pierre Cros there is no horse to plough the soils... no herbal tinctures to cure the vines and no magic in the cellar. And although I my head is sometimes in the clouds, I do not talk about the moon very often… I am standing with both feet firmly on the ground, and long time before it became a part of marketing and commerce, I realized that it’s sufficient to observe, to love and to respect the marvellous heritage of the ancestors and approach an exceptional terroir with sense and mind. No need for fine words and colourful medals on our bottles – authenticity is the key !

The Domaine Pierre Cros extends over some 50 hectares, with only half of it being planted with vineyards. The other half consists of wild Garrigue*, but also of almond trees, olive groves and even truffle oaks. Occasionally, the planting of those trees has been the opportunity to invite school children of Badens, to familiarize with respect and love for nature, go teach them, that this diversity embellishes the landscape and, according to the season, increases the complexity of natural fragrances in the air, that might be rediscovered in our wines.

Minervois

A.O.P. Minervois

The Minervois is one of the most ancient vineyards of the Mediterranean region. Indeed, its land was chosen by the Romans as providing ideal conditions for the first vines they planted in Languedoc Roussillon. Its name comes from the ancient city of Minerve, a stronghold built by the Romans and dedicated to the goddess Minerva. Since that time, many amphora shards and vestiges of cellars have been discovered, testimony to the importance of this vineyard. The region, austere in winter and redolent with sunshine in summer, has survived over the centuries its invasions by barbarians, Arabs and Christians. The essence of Minervois la Livinière, as in so many Midi appellations, is the blend; a marriage of different grape varieties that adds subtle nuance of flavour to the whole. Natural alcohol level must reach a minimum of 12% without enrichment (so no chaptalisation) and maximum yield is a modest 45 hl/ha. Ageing may be in barrel or vat, and unlike basic Minervois, the wine must be bottled at source, so cannot be sent off to a négociant elsewhere in France...


The Grapes

The Grapes

There are thousands of grape varieties contributing to a vast array of different wine styles with each variety having its own distinct flavours and characteristics. Varieties can be made uniquely to make a wine, in whch case the wine is known as a varietal, or collectively with other varities, when the wine is known as a blend. The soils and ‘terroirs’ in the Aude area are very varied, from Schist, Sandstone, Marl, Gravel, Pebbles, Limestone, to Granit and Alluvial soil; thus making many marvelous and different styles of wine. Also in this massive area are many different grape varieties, the reds include Carignon, Cinsault, Granache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The whites, Chardonnay, Granache blanc, Picpoul, Marsanne, Roussanne, Vermantino, Mauzac, Chenin and Clairette...
