Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Vray Croix de Gay, now co-owned by Paul Goldschmidt and Artemis Domaines, has a very composed bouquet with attractive, mineral-infused black and red fruit tinged with black truffle and sage. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle, almost understated opening, almost deceiving as it opens up and gains more and more depth towards the precise and sophisticated finish. Yes, this is a great Vray Croix de Gay that should age in consummate style. This is very fine.
