2014 Domaine La Croix Montjoie Bourgogne Vezelay
The Burgundy town of Vézelay has a history of viticulture that dates back to the Gallo-Roman times of the late first and early second centuries. The remains of a Roman temple to Bacchus became the foundation for a Benedictine monastery that was founded in 860 CE, which eventually became the engine of the local wine industry.
Awarded AOC status in 1985, Vézelay was initially given a Bourgogne appellation and later earned the right to add Vézelay to the label. The appellation occupies the hillsides of the villages of Asquins, Saint Père, Tharoiseau, and Vézelay.
The Burgundy Vézelay appellation is located south of Yonne, between Chablis and Beaune. The vineyard is grouped on the slopes of four communes (Tharoiseau, Saint-Père, Vézelay and Asquins) and covers a hundred hectares.
The Vézelay hill and the Sainte Marie-Madeleine basilica, listed as UNESCO World Heritage, dominate this vineyard. High place of pilgrimage, the basilica is a starting point for Saint Jacques de Compostela.
The color is pale gold, limpid and shiny. The aromas are delicate hints of hazelnuts and citrus. It is well balanced and elegant with lovely minerality and beautiful length in the mouth.
