A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc from this well-situated vineyard on the plateau of Pomerol, which is owned by Chantal Lebreton, this wine has 13.5% alcohol, somewhat low in this vintage, but it 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, and therefore my feeling is that it should be drunk in its first 10-12 years of life. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at the Pomerol Syndicate tasting. This has a fleshy nose of macerated red cherries with a touch of alcohol evident (although the sample had been opened a while.) The palate has a saturated mouthfeel, smooth texture, fleshy with well integrated new oak, modern in style and missing a touch of delineation, but there is panache. Tasted April 2010.

Dark fruits, with black olives and aged cedar on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and chocolate, toasted oak and vanilla undertones. Give it time to come together. Better in 2016. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Mineral, blueberry and wet earth aromas follow through to a full body, with pretty, velvety tannins and a long coffee, chocolate, vanilla and fruit aftertaste

Toasty oak nose. Very smooth fruit. Not as intense or deep- flavoured as some. A little awkward.
