    The Charm and Fruit of an Iconic Pomerol Wine

    An emblematic property of the prestigious Pomerol appellation on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region, Chateau La Croix de Gay is one of the most popular references among Pomerol-lovers. Managed by the Raynaud-Lebreton family, the estate has produced a wine consistent in style, which has managed to please those who seek powerful and rich wines.

    Made from an exceptional terroir, the Chateau La Croix de Gay 2017 blends 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc from two groups of plots that give the wine its complexity and refinement. The first terroir is located on the high terrace of Pomerol, with vineyards planted on the gravelly soils of the Günzian ice age. The second terroir is set between the great Chateaux Trotanoy and La Pointe on Mindelian gravel.

    With its aromatic purity, power and finesse on the palate, the Chateau La Croix de Gay 2017 represents the superb success of the property even in this atypical vintage. A Pomerol that joins the list of exceptional wines of this 2017 vintage.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 La Croix de Gay gives up notes of asphalt, sautéed herbs and damp soil over a core of baked black plums, fruitcake and dried mulberries. Medium-bodied, the palate has a fair bit of chew with just enough muscular fruit and an herbal lift on the finish.
