A complex and sophisticated Pomerol wine

The estate

Surrounded by the finest crus of its appellation, Chateau Vray Croix de Gay is one of the finest references in the Pomerol appellation, on the right bank of the Bordeaux region.

Winemaking and aging

Throughout the winemaking process, the emphasis is on a gentle and optimal extraction. The wine is aged in lightly heated French oak barrels (50% of which are new) for 14 months.

The blend

Chateau Vray Croix de Gay 2010 comprises a blend of Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Franc (20%).

The tasting

Lively and complex, this fine Pomerol red wine has a silky feel and harmoniously blends notes of truffles and violets with smoky and delicate tannins.

Storage

This Chateau Vray Croix de Gay 2010 can be enjoyed today or can also be kept in the cellar until at least 2035 which will enable it to reveal its full aromatic range.

Food and wine pairing

Due to its structure and aromatic richness, this Chateau Vray Croix de Gay 2010 will perfectly complement dishes with a sauce, game, truffle-based dishes or chocolate desserts.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2010 Vray Croix de Gay is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc (pretty much a standard reference blend for many estates in Pomerol). This tiny estate of approximately 12 acres has produced a solid wine with medium body and attractive notes of licorice, roasted herbs and forest flora as well as black cherries and black currants. The wine is medium-bodied and well-made, with light tannins in the finish. Give it 1-2 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 10 years.
