Other Reviews....
The 2016 Vray Croix de Gay, now co-owned by Paul Goldschmidt and Artemis Domaines, has a very composed bouquet with attractive, mineral-infused black and red fruit tinged with black truffle and sage. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle, almost understated opening, almost deceiving as it opens up and gains more and more depth towards the precise and sophisticated finish. Yes, this is a great Vray Croix de Gay that should age in consummate style. This is very fine.

Delightful raspberry and red currant preserve notes race through, flecked with light anise and fruitcake hints. Stays fresh through the finish.-J.M.

Wine Spectator

A tangy and minerally red with a salty, chalky character under the blue fruits. Medium to full body and a chewy finish.

James Suckling

This is a perfumed, juicy wine, with a dry core that's balanced by crisp black-currant fruit. It's spicy, fruity and fresh in bright acidity. Structured, yet fruity, the balance is just right.

Wine Enthusiast

The 2016 Vray Croix de Gay is deep, sumptuous and opulent to the core. Inky blue/purplish fruit, crème de cassis, mint, sage, lavender and hard candy give the 2016 its sweet, unctuous personality. Even with all of its intensity, the 2016 possesses striking detail and nuance. This is an especially flamboyant style, but it all works beautifully. The 2016 has been absolutely fabulous on the three occasions I have tasted it so far.
