Château La Croizille
Owner of the neighbouring domain Château Tour Baladoz since 1950, the family was well aware of its great potential. After many years of hard work and major investments, Emile and later on his eldest son Firmin brought Château Tour Baladoz to its actual level i.e. one of the finest Grands Crus in Saint-Émilion.
When the younger son Jacques bought Château La Croizille in 1996, he immediately decided to turn it into an extraordinary vineyard, out of respect for his elders, out of respect for the exceptional terroir and as a challenge for himself. In 2000 Firmin’s son Olivier entered the company to reinforce the team. The goal for Château La Croizille, to play in the premier league, was set.
Fifteen years of investment in the vineyard under the supervision of the director Jean-Michel Garcion has borne its fruits. Château La Croizille now disposes of a perfectly structured vineyard with a high diversity of orientations and terroirs, ideal for the elaboration of an exceptional wine.
With the construction of a new modern cellar that ended in 2012, the family De Schepper began a new chapter in the history of Château La Croizille. The result is a high-end technical tool which at the same time enhances the tourism potential of the estate.
