Story

"La Croix de Prieur is Château Coussin's second wine, produced in the heart of the Trets terroir. It is made from a plot that belonged to the monks of the Abbey of Saint Victor in Marseille, in the Middle Ages.

Pale pink in color with coral highlights. A voluptuous nose of pear and peach with a touch of aniseed. Refreshing and ample with a pleasant finish." More at Sumeire.com
