Chateau la Croix de Gay 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Perfumy, quite floral and rich on the nose with some darkish fruit that's carrying some obvious oak but it's pretty well integrated but still a bit new worldly. Smooth, fairly powerful and quite dark in the mouth, this has some deep, almost over extracted but still quite fresh wild berry fruit in the mouth. the fruit is a bit front loaded and the tannins do crush the backend but they are fresh tannins that should resolve well, and the wine does show some lovely inner mouth perfumes through that modest finish. A lot of promise here. 89pts

Juicy and forward, with dark raspberry and blackberry fruit, roasted wood spice and a long, black licorice-filled finish. A buried graphite edge drives the aftertaste, lending latent grip for the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2022.

The blend is 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, and it has turned out well in 2010, producing a richly fruity, elegant style of Pomerol with loads of berry fruit, cedar wood and roasted herbs as well as hints of coffee bean and cedar. Rich, medium to full-bodied , but never losing its finesse (which is usually the style of La Croix de Gay), this wine should drink nicely for up to 15 years.

While it is dense, the wine does not have structure. It seems diffuse, the berry fruit element not in balance with the tannins.
