Robert Parker awarded the Pomerol appellation **** (Four Stars) for the 1994 vintage and because its cepage is 80% Merlot,in his Bordeaux book (Third Edition),he names La Croix de Gay as one of the wines of the vintage.

"In 1994,the most favoured appellations were those that either had a high percentage of Merlot planted or had exceptionally well drained soils.As in 1993,Pomerol appears to be the most favoured region (in Bordeaux)".


Describing the 1994 La Croix de Gay,his tasting notes were:-

"A dense,saturated,dark,ruby/purple-color suggests fine intensity and ripeness.Sweet berry fruit intermixed with vanillin,herbs,and spices emerges from the wine's aromatics.Medium-bodied,with good richness and purity,and a soft,fleshy attack,this stylish,concentrated wine should prove to be excellent".

Robert Parker. (Above excerpts taken from his book "Bordeaux.A Comprehensive Guide. Third Edition".
