2009 Château La Croix de Gay, Pomerol

“What a wonderful 2009 from La Croix de Gay, as a new chapter opens in its history. It is blessed with a beautiful, very pure bouquet with floral red cherries strawberry and a touch of marmalade and apricot blossom. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannins, great precision with fine mineralite and length. Superb.” Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 92 Points (January 2010)


“A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc from this well-situated vineyard on the plateau of Pomerol… [I]t displays plenty of kirsch, sweet cherries and red currants along with some sandy/loamy soil and roasted herb notes in a very sexy, up-front, lush, medium to full-bodied style. There’s not a hard edge to be found in this La Croix de Gay…” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 90 Points (February 2012)
