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
Blueberries, blackberries and redcurrant aromas, and a crisp, tightly wound palate with flavours of game, black truffle and dark cherries. The tannins are very fine and smooth, and the wine will be accessible from around 2018, and drinking well for a further two decades after that.

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.
