With an aromatic nose of raspberries, cherries, smoke and espresso, the palate is rich and opulent with loads of fruit and a plush texture. These subtle aromas of dark fruits on the nose follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and delicious fruit. This is layered and refined.
Food Pairing: Chateau La Croix de Gay is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted braised and grilled dishes. Chateau La Croix de Gay is also good with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
Wine SpectatorA pretty style, with a light hint of shiso leaf amid the mulled cherry and raspberry flavors, backed by a persistent black tea note on the silky finish. Lacks a ton of range, but what's there is suave. Drink now through 2028.
