Eén van de meest betaalbare wijnen in Pomerol van de familie Lebreton. Slechts 4,2 ha beplant met 92% merlot en 8% cabernet franc druiven. Rijp, romig en geconcentreerd zijn de kernwoorden voor deze klassieke Pomerol.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 La Croix de Gay bursts into the room with rambunctious baked blueberries, Morello cherries, stewed plums and cedar chest scents plus hints of grilled meats, bay leaves, tar and fragrant soil. The full-bodied palate is generously fruited with herb sparks and black and blue fruit preserves, framed by velvety tannins, finishing long and earthy.
Plenty of dark-berry and chocolate character here to the medium-to full-bodied palate with ripe tannins and a flavorful finish.
This has a tightness on the attack but it softens and shows lovely rich ripe fruits. It’s good quality well balanced and enjoyable with plenty of silkiness and Pomerol gloss.
