La Croix de Gay 2020

La Croix de Gay

Case Format: 6x75cl

Château La Croix de Gay has a long history, entrenched within the Pomerol appellation. The owners of the vineyard – the Raynaud-Lebrereton family – have been based in Bordeaux since the 15th century. In recent years the vineyard has decreased in size, selling some of its coveted plots to the neighbouring Château Lafite Rothschild and Château L’Evangile. Now standing at four hectares in size, the vineyards are planted with Merlot (c.86%) and Cabernet Franc (c.14%). The estate benefits from two types of soil: Gunz gravel on the upper Pomerol terrace and the southern slop of the plateau. The terroir nurtures the distinct characteristics of both the Merlot and Cabernet Franc, which sees complexity and roundness in the final blend. A wine that can be enjoyed both young and after a period of ageing, expect delicious aromas of violet and truffle.



Georgina Hindle

Fresh and fruity, clean and clear, quite intense and concentrated with liquorice on show, but it has a nice persistence of flavour and feels balanced in terms of tannic texture, fruit concentration and acidity. Fresh ripe fruit and minerality. Clearly lots of wood on show, this needs a few years, it narrows towards the finish. Linear, fresh and focused, with lots of mint and spice.

Jeb Dunnuck

An outstanding effort from this Pomerol château, the 2020 Château La Croix De Gay reveals a deeper ruby/plum color as well as a spicy, complex, expressive bouquet of red and black fruits, loamy earth, dried herbs, and nicely integrated oak. Medium-bodied on the palate, with ripe tannins and solid overall balance, its going to evolve nicely for 10-15 years.
