La Croix de Gay 2022

La Croix de Gay

Case Format: 12x75cl

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 lively, but quite tart and a little stalky too, nice acidity keeps the freshness, but the flavours are quite intensely spiced and herbal with strawberry, raspberry, liquorice, clove and dark chocolate giving a bitterness all the way through which doesnt quite match the sharp tangy fruit at this point. Tannins are well integrated, but so well that the sharpness stands out a little. A yield of 25hl/ha.

Jancis Robinson

Deep, glowing crimson. Intense and interesting on the nose with notes of dried herbs that I have not encountered elsewhere. Very sweet and plush – very different from Le Gay 2022 and closer to the Pomerol paradigm. Not overdone though – offering pure pleasure. Already quite approachable with the alcohol just a little evident on the end of the palate at which point ripe tannins make themselves felt.
