Chateaux La Croix de Gay is one of the oldest family estates at Pomerol. Up to the 15th century, there are tracks of the predecessors of the Raynaud-Lebreton family. Chantal Lebreton now does the vinification. After an inheritance matter with her brother, the total surface of initially 10ha was reduced to 4.20ha. Only the best terroirs were kept; one with gravel and clay of exceptional quality between Ch. Le Gay and Ch. Rouget and one other qualitative terroir between Ch. Trotanoy and Ch. La Pointe. Both terroirs give their own characteristics to the wine and contribute to extra complexity in the final assembly. Ch. La Groix de Gay belongs to the better Pomerols of the plateau for a price that stays reasonable. Highly recommended and an absolute favourite of Topwijnen.
