1989 Château La Croix de Gay, 12-bottle Lot, Wood Case
The ancestors of the Raynaud-Lebreton family, Mathelin and Michel Barraud, received at this date, as a lease from the Hospitallers of Saint John of Jerusalem, some lands at the center of the Pomerol's shelf. Curious contrast, as it has become the richest part of the commune of Pomerol, which contains some of the most famous wines. During the 19th and 20th century the domaine was only transmitted through women. From generation to generation their husband have transmitted a winemaking knowledge as well as the knowledge of the terroirs of Pomerol proof of the regularity and quality of the wines of the domaine.
Pomerol is a commune in the libournais, on the right shore of the Garonne. It is the largest surface of the eponymous appellation. This one also includes a few plots on the commune of Libourne considered as the historical vineyards.
