Remarkably exposed on the south side of the famous Pomerol plateau, the terroir of Croix Toulifaut is situated between Château Beauregard in Pomerol and Château Figeac, Saint-Émilion 1er Grand Cru Classé.
sandy on a ferruginous background with very large quantities of "clinker" hardpan whose influence is pleasantly felt in the ageing of the great wines of Pomerol.
85% Merlot, for roundness, fullness and fruit aromas and 15% Cabernet Franc, for elegance, structure.
