About the wine
Croix Noires (0.58ha) is also located below the Rugiens, adjacent to the Frémiers. De Courcel owns more than half of the total surface of the cru. Although situated close to the Frémiers, the soil here is deeper (0.8m) containing more clay. The vines are east-facing and all around 40 years of age.
The wines produced have strong aromas leaning towards very ripe black cherry and also enjoy marked tannins.
