The blend is 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, and it has turned out well in 2010, producing a richly fruity, elegant style of Pomerol with loads of berry fruit, cedar wood and roasted herbs as well as hints of coffee bean and cedar. Rich, medium to full-bodied , but never losing its finesse (which is usually the style of La Croix de Gay), this wine should drink nicely for up to 15 years. The 25-acre vineyard produces wine with the assistance of Michel Rolland. Dr. Alain Raynaud has sold his interest to his sister, and part of the vineyard was actually sold to Chateau L'Evangile. Drink: 2013 - 2028. Wine Advocate #205 Feb 2013

Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol. This has a generous bouquet with some attractive earthy notes and just the right amount of herbaceous character. The palate is full-bodied with grippy ripe tannins, the oak a little disjointed at the moment but will hopefully coalesce by the time of bottling. This may warrant a higher mark after bottling. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Dark purple. Very sweet and plush – almost chocolatey with just a hint of greenness on the finish. Quite chewy on the end. Lots of pleasure even if not 100% complete. Sweet and just slightly simple. jancisrobinson.com
