7 acres of vineyards, averaging 30 years in age, are divided into 10 different parcels planted to 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Chantal Lebreton attacks the wine making process with the same energy and perfectionist attitude previous generations produced this wine with! The 2016 Chateau La Croix de Gay is accumulation of generations striving to create the ultimate expression of the right bank dignitary, Pomerol!
Tasting notes: Aromas of ripe plums, boysenberry, nutmeg, and cocoa bean lift out of the glass. The palate has a soft textured, medium bodied, and an elegant Pomerol charm. The final crescendo is stuck with a light, black cherry and tomato leaf finish.
Love the seductive nose of ripe blackberries, pomegranate and baking spices. Ripe and rich, the dry tannins balance the extravagant body beautifully and give this some real charisma. Long, very ripe and creamy but focused finish. Drink or hold. ~95JS
