The 2022 Vray Croix de Gay is wonderfully elegant and sophisticated from the first taste. Aromatically expressive and nuanced, the 2022 is all class. Red berry fruit, mocha, spice, cedar and sweet pipe tobacco lend nuance throughout. Readers will find a Pomerol that is much more about finesse and persistence than size. Citrus-infused acids and a touch of spice lift the finish - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

A fine and fresh Pomerol with chocolate, hazelnut and dark berry, as well as orange peel. Really lovely and pretty. - James Suckling

The 2022 Vray Croix de Gay, 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, is deep garnet-purple in color. It bursts with bold notions of blackberry preserves, prunes, and boysenberries, giving way to notions of crushed rocks, tar, and Sichuan pepper. The full-bodied palate is jam packed with black fruit preserves flavors, accented by earthy undertones and framed with ripe, rounded tannins, finishing with a spicy lift. pH 3.85. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent

Intense blackberry, kirsch, cherries dipped in black chooclate, liqourice. High alchols give a flash of heat while emphasising supple tannins, drama and Pomerol signature. Vincent Millet director across the group, overseeing Le Prieure and Vray Croix de Gay as well as Calon Ségur over in St Estèphe. Eric Boissenot consultant as of this year. 30% new oak for ageing, with the rest in one year old wine barrels and amphoras. 28hl/h yield, 30% new oak. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Vray Croix de Gay is the first vintage produced from start to finish by Vincent Millet and his team from Calon Ségur. Exhibiting aromas of sweet berries, orange zest, violets and rose petals, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and velvety, with lively acids and a saline finish. It's derived from a parcel opposite Le Gay and Trotonoy. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Quite herbal and darkly savoury on the nose, dark chocolate and liquorice elements with bramble fruit - this smells serious and concentrated, sticky sweet with hints of dates. Juicy and friendly on the palate initially - the Merlot has a certain plushness in the mouth with the tannins giving a small bounce and cushioning to the palate with some hints of sweet strawberry jam giving the playful appeal. Then the serious concentrated side kicks in with liquorice, wet stone and clove that edges the frame and gives the spiced definition and freshness from the mid palate onwards. Still a hefty, broad wine, just narrowed into a sleek line right now. The wine was presented within the Calon-Segur stable with Vincent Maillet overseeing production. 3.85pH. A yield of 28hl/ha. Ageing 18 months, 30% new oak. Eric Boissenot consultant. Harvest 5 September - 22 September. Tasted twice. HVE certified. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter
