The black fruits, cassis and bilberry notes are more clear than with the Fleur de Gay, and the notes of austerity are also more in evidence, along with tight tannins. This wine is well balanced between spice, acidity and fruit, although it needs a few years to relax and emerge from tannins that are currently on full alert. The silky texture and structure are impressive as it unwinds.

(WS90-93 points) Really vivid raspberry and boysenberry confiture notes stream through, flecked with anise and singed apple wood flavors. Nice explosion of spice through the finish. – JM

The 2016 Château La Croix de Gay is, I suspect, the finest to date for this estate. Almost all Merlot (there’s 5% Cabernet Franc), it has a beautiful nose of dried flowers, truffle, smoke tobacco, and both sweet red and black fruits. About as seamless as it gets on the palate, with terrific elegance, it’s a thrilling Pomerol that has real class. It’s beautiful today and will be beautiful in 15-20 years as well.

The 2016 La Croix de Gay is medium to deep garnet-purple colored with a nose of black and red cherries, mulberries, herbs and earth with a waft of tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is lively with firm, grainy tannins and cedar on the finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

17/20 Bright glowing crimson. Floral top note. Sweet start and great care taken with tannin quality. Savoury end. Real raciness. Polish and savour. Well done. A pleasure to taste.
