The Croix Noires (0.58h) are also located below the Rugiens, adjacent to the Frémiers on the north side. The Domaine owns more than half of the total surface of the appellation. Although situated close to the Frémiers, the soil here is deeper (0.8m) and more claey. 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. To be served at 15°C.

Wine SpectatorForthcoming aromas of sandalwood, flowers, wild berry and herbs highlight this red, which is tight and tannic on the palate. Needs time to resolve the dual personalities. Best from 2019 through 2033. 30 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Pommard 1er Cru Croix Noires has a feminine, quite elegant bouquet with scents of raspberry preserve, redcurrant jus and light mushroom scents. The palate is sweet and composed on the entry. There is a noticeable saline element to this Pommard that shows rigidity and structure towards the slightly clipped finish.
