A dramatic, sweeping wine, the 2015 La Croix de Gay possesses notable depth and pure power. Broad tannins provide the backdrop for a huge core of fruit. Iron, smoke, tobacco and a host of savory/feral notes add myriad shades of nuance throughout. The 2015 is shaping up to be a terrific wine, but readers will have to be patient.

The 2015 La Croix de Gay has an expressive, understated, but very well-defined bouquet with raspberry and cranberry fruit, cedar and a touch of truffle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, moderate depth in the mouth with precision and refinement towards the finish. It is a beautifully crafted La Croix de Gay, not as long-term as some of its peers, but balanced and surely delicious. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2030

A savory and juicy red with sliced plum and chocolate character. Full body. Yeah. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Bright and juicy, with damson plum, raspberry coulis and bitter cherry notes. Offers a lovely fresh feel. Not as dense as the big boys, but delivers plenty of delightful fruit and adequate length. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Dark and opulent with freshness as well. Lovely Merlot expression. Precise, tidy and long on the finish. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2022-2035

A ripe, opulent, textured, Merlot-dominated blend with plenty of new oak, but the structure and concentration to cope. The tannins are just a little firm on the finish perhaps, but should soften in barrel. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2028
