Tannic monster. Full-bodied, with masses of superripe fruit and mouthpuckering tannins. Port lovers like me love this stuff. Age it for decades to come.

(11-2014) Delicious with complex layers of sweet spice, red fruit and black truffle. Medium bodied with generous, intense flavors and a long finish. Often under-valued compared to its more pricey neighbors, this vintage shows Le Gay is one of the best wines from Pomerol.

(05-2015) Very dense and still with very notable tannins and tightness! Thick and dense with some future development ahead of it. If the Lynch Bages 2005 served beside it was surprisingly evolved, this was the reverse.

(Ed 1998)
This is one estate where the 1989 outshines the 1990. The 1989 displays a youthful deep rubypurple color, and dense, tannic, muscular flavors that are just beginning to reveal sweetness and opulence. Backward, youthfully tannic, and grapy for a 1989, this artisinally-styled, robust, muscular Pomerol will benefit from another 2-3 years of cellaring.-

(09-1998) Lovely, deep, rich colour; ripe mulberry, a hint of mint; very distinctive, full of fruit, some finesse and elegance, spicy tannic finish.
