Ch. Vray Croix de Gay (0.375 L)
The 2014 Vray Croix de Gay has an almost timid bouquet at first, and it necessitates coaxing it out from the glass, because there are certainly some pretty red berry fruit here, laced with black truffle and smoky scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple and quite lithe tannin. It has pretty dark cherry and black plum fruit, a keen line of acidity, and then a surprisingly strict and linear finish that suggests it will benefit from another three or four years in bottle. This is a well-crafted Vray Croix de Gay.
