Since the early 19th century, the Domaine la Croix Saint-Laurent’s proprietor’s passion for winemaking has been passed from one generation to the next. Joël and Sylvie Cirotte and their son Fabien (11th generation winemaker), embody this passion today. The estate is nestled among rolling hills, in the winemaking village of Bué, just a few kilometers from Sancerre toward Bourges.

The 9.5 ha (23.5 acres) property benefits from a southwestern exposure and a unique microclimate, due to its proximity to the Loire River and altitude. The vineyards of Bué are amongst the very best of the Sancerre Appellation d’Origine Controlée (AOC).
