CHATEAU LA CROIX DE GAY 1988/2014

Wine Region: Pomerol, Bordeaux, France

Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot

Tasting Notes

Fantastic Pomerol here with soft dark red fruit and a hint of tobacco. Medium to full bodied with balanced fruit and acidity makes this a sure bet for pairing with heavier chicken dishes and red meat. 

About the winery

The vineyard of the castle La Croix de Gay is currently highlighted by the family Raynaud-Lebreton, descendant of a line of Pomerolese winemakers dating back to 1772 but settled on the town since at least 1477.
The ancestors of the Raynaud-Lebreton family, Mathelin and Michel Barraud have indeed received, at this date of the order of the Hospitallers of Saint-Jean-de-Jerusalem, for exploitation, lands in the center of the Pomerol plateau.
