1995 La Croix de Gay, Pomerol

SKU #110193

According to Robert Parker: "This is a seductive, elegant, attractive Pomerol with a deep ruby color, plenty of sweet, plum, cherry and berry fruit intermixed with subtle toasty new oak. The wine is round and lush, with copious fruit and enough glycerin to provide a nicely layered texture in a stylish format. Anticipated maturity: Now-2006." (02/98) 89 points Wine Spectator: "A bit tough but should come around. Plenty of blackberry, cherry and tobacco aromas. Full-bodied, with velvety yet slightly astringent tannins. Medium finish. Needs time. Best after 2000." (01/98)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
