The 2022 Vray Croix de Gay is wonderfully elegant and sophisticated from the first taste. Aromatically expressive and nuanced, the 2022 is all class. Red berry fruit, mocha, spice, cedar and sweet pipe tobacco lend nuance throughout. Readers will find a Pomerol that is much more about finesse and persistence than size. Citrus-infused acids and a touch of spice lift the finish. ~93-95 AG-VM
A fine and fresh Pomerol with chocolate, hazelnut and dark berry, as well as orange peel. Really lovely and pretty. ~93-94 JS
The 2022 Vray Croix de Gay, aged for 18 months in 30% new oak, contains 10% Cabernet Franc this year with 14.5% alcohol. For the first time, the Calon-Segur oversaw the vinification here. Now, this has a refined bouquet, less rustic perhaps than previous vintages, quite pure, dark berry fruit, a pleasing mineralite that percolate through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, very harmonious. Where this really strides ahead of previous vintages is the mid-palate weight and the elegance that floods through on the finish. Joyous Pomerol. The best Vray Croix de Gay to date. ~92-94 NM-VM
