Decanter   91

Split over two areas, one by Lafleur and the other by Trotanoy, divided into nine plots, none of which were affected by frost. A little austere, this is not quite at the level of 2016, but is still extremely good stuff from winemaker Penelope Godefroy and owners Artemis. Reticent at first, it needs to be met rather than glossed over, although it was tasting significantly richer at a tasting held just a week later. This showcases firm, bright, fine tannins with damson fruits that trip along the palate. Three years of working biodynamically at this estate are starting to show through in terms of heightened persistency and vibrancy to the tannins. Jean Claude Berrouet consults. Harvested 13-28 September.

Vinous   90-92

The 2017 Vray Croix de Gay, now co-owned by the Artemis Group of François Pinault (see Château Latour) has an attractive, quite focused bouquet with mineral-driven red berry fruit laced with subtle iodine and marine aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, gentle grip, well judged acidity with a sense of tension coming through towards the finish. This is a well crafted Pomerol that I envisage maturing with style. One to watch.
