ABOUT THE WINE
Located on the southern slopes of the Pomerol plateau, Château la Croix de Gay has been in the Raynaud-Lebreton family for five generations. The estate’s first vintages were in the 1700s, and the vineyard underwent gradual expansion over the subsequent centuries, until 2012, when 6 hectares were sold off to Château l’Evangile, leaving La Croix de Gay with just under 4 hectares of vines. The wines are aged in French oak, 50% new, for 18 months prior to release, and offer excellent value for the appellation.

TASTING NOTES
A dazzling and complex bouquet of black fruits, and smoky - earthy truffle notes. Quite a structured vintage that isn't shy and will get much smoother and rewarding after 2022.

FOOD PAIRING
Perfect with feathered game dishes – try with pheasant ragout.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
The name of the estate is drawn from a cross which stands at one of the corners of the property.
