Les Cent Vignes is one of the first vineyards you encounter if you’re heading west out of Beaune. It’s unofficially divided into two sections: the upper slope, with its brown clays and gravel (grèze litée), and the lower part, with well-drained alluvial soils. Domaine des Croix farms four parcels of old vines on both terroirs (and just over one hectare in total), planted in 1955, 1956, 1957 and 1968' The 2021 Cent Vignes incorporated 25% whole bunches, with Croix keeping them at the bottom of the fermenter so they weren’t damaged during punch-downs.

"The 2021 Beaune Les Cents Vignes 1er Cru, which includes some rows without hedging and others trimmed, has an understated bouquet with slightly tertiary red fruit. The palate is where the action is, consisting of very fine-boned tannins and perfectly judged acidity. A pixelated finish beckons you back for more. Superb." 91-93 points, Neal Martin, Vinous

"Notions of orange zest, peonies, spices, rose petals and red berries preface the 2021 Beaune 1er Cru Les Cents Vignes, a medium to full-bodied, melting and open-knit wine that's pretty and perfumed. It's not the most serious or concentrated wine in the range, but it's long on upfront charm." 89-91 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
