History of Domaine Grande Croix Mougne

The house has an interesting history, including the fact of an old chapel within the grounds that was believed to have had the power to cure humans of various diseases, illnesses, and ailments.  All one had to do to be cured was to visit the chapel and to have one of your personal belongings placed deep within a crevice in the walls of the nave for the ailment to be relieved.

This chapel was hidden deep within the forest, and the only way to get there was marked by a cross close by.  One day a local winemaker decided that the ideal location in which to create his brandy - brandy that was soon to become cognac - was by this cross that marked the way.  His wares soon became the draw for all pilgrims who would seek out the chapel - and once tasted, they were unable to remember their way to the chapel.

This did not please those up in the heavens.  To to seek vengance a lightening bolt was sent to blast the directional cross, leaving nothing but a stump.  This stump was known in the local language as, 'Croix Mougne'.

With archives dating back to the 18th century, the estate of Domaine Grande Croix Mougne has been in the same family for seven generations.
