La Croix Dillanges (Saint-Julien, Bordeaux)

La Croix Dillanges is a cuvée produced by Château du Glana, a young estate established in 1999. Its modern facilities and meticulous care in the vineyard help continue the high quality wines this region is known for.

Château du Glana is located on the Route des Grands Vins running parallel to the Gironde estuary, between the towns of Beychevelle and Saint-Julien, opposite the famous Château Ducru-Beaucaillou.  Château du Glana was first started in 1870 by the Cayx family – At this time it was only a small (5 hectares) vineyard of gravelly soil, consolidated thanks to the purchase of several plots of land from neighboring Château Saint-Pierre. After several other owners, Mr Gabriel Meffre bought Château du Glana in 1961. He increased the vineyard to 43 hectares in the following years by acquiring several plots of land from third growth Château Lagrange.

With the help of his sons, Ludovic and Julien, Jean-Paul Meffre now looks after the estate. Surrounded by some of finest great growths in the Médoc, Château du Glana has made tremendous strides in quality since 1999. Château du Glana produces modern elegant wines of character reflecting the estate’s superb terroir.

The estate’s completely restored buildings (vat room, grape reception area, ageing cellar, offices, and reception room), the immense care taken in the vineyard, and precious winemaking advice from Professor Denis Dubourdieu provide a sound equilibrium between modern methods and respect for tradition.
