Winemaker's Notes:

A bouquet of vanilla, almond, and red fruit. Chateau La Croix De Gay is aged in stave wood and oak barrels, which add complexity to this intrinsically elegant wine.

Blend: 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

My Notes:

About Chateau La Croix De Gay:

Chateau La Croix De Gay has been in the Raynaud family for five generations and their history is intimately linked with that of Pomerol.

Located on a part of Pomerol plateau with ideal sun exposure (along with the other finest chateau in the appellation), Chateau La Croix De Gay is carefully managed by its owners, who use the best of both age-old traditions and modern techniques.
