2015 Vray Croix de Gay

$1,056.00
6 x 750ml
The 2015 Vray Croix de Gay is just as alluring from bottle as it was from barrel. Inky, powerful and explosive, the 2015 exudes richness in all of its dimensions. Blueberry jam, crème de cassis, licorice, menthol, spice and lavender form an exotic mélange of aromas and flavors, but it is the wine's balance and sense of proportion that are most impressive. Even with all of its intensity, the 2015 remains gracious and light on its feet for such a rich wine. This sumptuous, inviting Pomerol is a star in the making. Don't miss it. Read more

Just 3ha in size, part owned by Artemis of Latour, with Penelope Godefroy as winemaker. This is fabulous, one of the finds of the tasting - tight but juicy dark fruits show great complexity with fine tannins. A sexy Pomerol, but not overly so, this is elegant and compelling.

Complex aromas of dark fruits, mushrooms, orange peel and dried flowers follow through to a full body. Round and velvety tannins and a chewy, rich finish. A gorgeous young wine. Needs four or five years to soften. Drink in 2022 and onwards.

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate

The 2015 Vray Croix de Gay has a crisp bouquet with blackberry, undergrowth, sage and black truffle scents, a little disjointed at first but gaining cohesion with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a crisp line of acidity, nicely focused with a tensile and quite persistent finish. This has developed nicely during its élevage and should give plenty of drinking pleasure over the next 15 to 20 years. Anticipated maturity: 2021 - 2038.

The Latour presence is obviously working. Super depth of fruit but marked by an elegant texture and refined tannins. Smooth and long with good persistence. Harmonious. 2022-2035

James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

Solid, if a bit chunky in feel, with a mix of red and black currant notes backed by brambly grip. Notes of ganache and apple wood fill in. Offers a light anise echo and some freshness through the finish, so this might settle in with some cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2028. 900 cases made.  –JM

Ma meilleure note donnée à ce cru en primeur.Couleur sombre, intense, belle et pourpre. Beau nez fin et épicé. Entrée en bouche délicatement moelleuse. Le vin s'offre très fruité, savoureuse, juteux et même complexe entre le milieu et la finale. Il s'achève long sur des arômes et des tannins distingués. Un délice. 17/20
