Chateau Vray Croix de Gay 2015, Pomerol
From an excellent vintage, this is a dark and dense wine, almost black in colour. The lovely spicy nose shows ripe summer plum and black cherry fruits and extremely refined tannins. Has promise to develop even further.
This 3.7-hectare property is superbly situated on the plateau. The biggest parcel adjoins La Fleur and is 100m from Petrus. Since 2015 the vineyards have been in conversion towards organic viticulture. The vineyards average over 50 years old and the blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
