This beautiful Château Vray Croix de Gay Pomerol is a rich, full-bodied red blend that offers aromas of ripe blackberry and black cherry, balanced with subtle hints of baking spice, tobacco, and cedar. On the palate, the wine is soft and lush, with a pleasing structure and firm tannic backbone. The finish is long and lingering, with a hint of dark chocolate and a hint of mocha.

Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

Château Potensac

Château Potensac Médoc is a benchmark of the Medoc. Whilst it has withdrawn from the current version of the classification, Potensac was one of the original Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel and the only one from the Medoc appellation. Whilst still a classic French Bordeaux blend made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, the wine is now Merlot dominant. This is due to the amount of clay and limestone soil on the property which is similar to that found on the escarpment in St Emilion. Along with Leoville Las Cases and Nenin, Chateau Potensac has belonged to the Delon family for generations, with the help of the ever-present Michel Rolland. This is reflected in the winemaking where the barrels come used from Clos du Maquis and the wine is aged for 16-18 months depending on the vintage. This wine ages well, developing notes of cigar box, and is a great introduction to Bordeaux.
