Description

A concentrated and delicate Pomerol red wine

The estate

For nearly six centuries, Château La Croix de Gay has overseen an exceptional terroir in Pomerol. The Raynaud-Lebreton family, now at the head of the estate, comes from a family of winegrowers since 1772, established in the commune of Pomerol since 1447.

The vineyard

Château La Croix de Gay 2022 is a Pomerol wine made from a 4.2-hectare vineyard planted on Günzian gravel and Mindel gravel on clay.

The vintage

Budburst at the end of March - beginning of April preceded an early frost episode (nights of 2 to 4 April) which affected the vineyard by 30 to 35%. Thereafter, the vegetative cycle was marked by sunny, hot and dry conditions. A warm month of May, which advanced an even flowering, preceded a summer punctuated by heat waves, offset by thunderstorms. The earliest harvest in the history of the estate began on 6 September and took place under exceptional conditions.

Winemaking and ageing

Hand-picked, the grapes are vatted for 34 to 35 days. Malolactic fermentation is carried out partly in barrels. The wine is aged in barrels (50% new, 50% from one wine).

Blend

Merlot (89%)
Cabernet Franc (11%).
