The wines from Château La Croix du Duc are produced in the neighbouring district, which border with the appellation Lussac is at the end of the rows. The estate has been in the hands of the family Chollet since 1865. The vines are located on clay and gravelly hillsides facing south west and the planting is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
