Description

The 2014 Le Gay is blessed with a fabulous bouquet of brambly red berry fruit tinged with black truffle, roasted chestnut and just a hint of hung game. There is marvelous energy here, the aromatics keeping you engaged. The palate is medium-bodied with superb purity, certainly very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. Sure, there is a veneer of vanilla oak to be assimilated on the finish, but there is such depth and persistence that this will be no problem. This surpasses my expectations from barrel and continues the fine form of this Pomerol estate.- WA93

Very ripe, rounded and creamy in feel, with flattering plum sauce and raspberry and boysenberry pâte de fruit flavors. Flecks of anise and black tea impart energy, keeping this focused and driven through the finish. A flashy display of fruit. Drink now through 2030. - WS92

The Winery

Châteaux La Croix de Gay and La Fleur de Gay are two properties owned by the same family living in Pomerol since 1477.

This two châteaux on six hectares of vineyard illustrate our burgundian vision of the Pomerol’s terroirs.   Each plot of our vineyard is for us a distinct « climat ».

However due to our Bordeaux culture of blend and our family knowledge of our plots we choose to make two separates synergic blends aged and bottled under two separates châteaux brands.

In this way, two different expressions of the greats terroirs of Pomerol can be distinguished : château La Croix de Gay et château La Fleur de Gay.  Like in burgundy the terms « Premier Cru » and « Grand Cru » may be choose to describe their relationship.  One is not the « tête de cuvée » or the second wine of the other.
