2009 Château La Croix de Gay  (Pomerol) 91

Pomerol is not a region known for value wines. Bargain hunting wine lovers should take a good look at this beauty, as it combines an opulent, lush styled Pomerol with good value. Lots of juicy black plum, licorice and earthy character are easily found here before ending in a plush, black cherry finish. Drink now, or over the next decade. 91 Points

2008 Château La Croix de Gay  (Pomerol) 88

Medium-bodied, lighter-styled, earthy, silky, fully developed wine with a soft, earth, and savory, plum character that will be at its best over the next 5 years or so. 88 Points

2005 Château La Croix de Gay  (Pomerol) 89

The addition of 5% Cabernet Franc to the Merlot dominated wine created a soft textured, refined, medium bodied Pomerol, with fennel, plum, black cherry and cocoa. This is already accessible and fun to drink. 89 Points

Produced from 95% Merlot and rest Cabernet Franc, the wine features scents of ripe plums, spice and milk chocolate. Soft textured and already drinking well, this medium bodied Pomerol should probably be drunk up before its 15th birthday. The wine ends with a light, black cherry finish. 87 Points

2001 Château La Croix de Gay  (Pomerol) 90

Fully mature Pomerol, with soft, silky textures, a medium body, and a floral, plummy, truffle essence. Popped and poured, this is drinking in its sweet spot. And because it is not really that well known, you should be able to score it for a fair price today. 90 Points

2000 Château La Croix de Gay  (Pomerol) 91

Probably close to mature, the wine is soft, round and supple in texture, with a dark chocolate covered red and black plum, truffle filled perfume. A nice value for a mature Pomerol if you can still find it for about $75 or less. 91 Points

1970 Château La Croix de Gay  (Pomerol) 84

Fully mature, with earth, red berries, smoke, soft textures and a short cherry finish. The wine faded in the glass after 20 minutes. Tasted blind, once it was revealed, it showed much better than I would have imagined. 84 Points

1955 Château La Croix de Gay  (Pomerol) 70

The wine is labeled Clos du Commanderie – This is a negociant bottling of Le Croix de Gay. The color of tea, the nose offered damp earth, tobacco and burning leaf aromas. Rustic and starting to run out of fruit, this is well past its prime. 70 Points

1945 Château La Croix de Gay  (Pomerol) 65

Orange and brick in color, very little fruit remained, and what little fruit was showing, was dwarfed by the amount of acidity and tartness in its cranberry character. This much more interesting on the nose with its complex, earthy scents than on the palate, with its tart, dry character. 65 Points
