Château Croix de Gay, Pomerol 1994

Château Croix du Gay, Pomerol 1989

Medium color, some maturity.   A little stewy and dense on the nose: green peppercorn, tea leaf, juniper berry.  A little more to it on palate than on the attack but there is something a bit hard, astringent and green about the tannins.  Coffee grounds and mirabelle but a little underfruited.  Decent balance and it finishes positively.  Certainly more to it than the ’85 from last month.  Fair.  Drink soon.
