Sensual, silky and super-refined, Vray Croix de Gay is positively stellar. A rush of inky red and purplish berry fruit, rose petal, lavender and spice lifts from the glass in a beautifully nuanced, sensual Pomerol. Today, the 2016 is sublime and also a touch more finessed than it was from barrel. That is what élevage is for, after all. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle, almost understated opening, almost deceiving as it opens up and gains more and more depth towards the precise and sophisticated finish. Yes, this is a great Vray Croix de Gay that should age in consummate style. This is very fine. - Neal Martin collapse

Wine Enthusiast, May 2019
(91–93) Barrel Sample. This is a perfumed, juicy wine, with a dry core that's balanced by crisp black-currant fruit. It's spicy, fruity and fresh in bright acidity. Structured, yet fruity, the balance is just right.

This is a very different structure and fruit expression from some, and needs time to settle in the glass.

You can feel the vibrancy of the bristling, mouthwatering redcurrant, raspberry and juicy black cherry, but it's just a touch austere right now. I had expected it to put on a little more weight since en primeur, but this is a Pomerol that's going for precision and vibrancy over overt sexiness. It makes you smile, but is carefully measured at present.

Luxurious textures, fresh, sweet black plum, earth, cocoa and licorice are all over the place. Rich and with silky tannins, this is the best wine I've tasted from Vray Croix de Gay.

Very fragrant, but slightly on the sweet side, this is a lavish Pomerol with some nice tannins and acidity coming through at the finish. Drink or hold.
