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

Critical Acclaim

"This is one of the finest efforts to yet emerge from this estate located on the plateau of Pomerol. A combination of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, it tips the scales at nearly 14% alcohol. Exhibiting a deep ruby/purple hue as well as a sweet bouquet of loamy soil, blueberries, cherries, plums, and mocha, it possesses lovely ripeness, savory elegance, purity, and overall balance. Enjoy it over the next 15 years. Range: 88-89"
