Since the acquisition of La Croix by Joseph, Marie-Antoinette and Jean-François JANOUEIX, Château La Croix has taken on the value of a symbol: that of continuity at the head of the estate and over three centuries of a wine-growing elite.

The restoration of the property testifies to this "Joseph Janoueix style", i.e. a synthesis of wine and wine production between modernity and the Correze fidelity to the land. The vineyards of La Croix can today give the best of themselves, that is to say one of the greatest wines of Pomerol..
