Château le Gay En Primeur 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Château Le Gay 2009 has been described by Robert Parker as "an outstanding wine" and by Jancis Robinson as "Pretty damned good." The ’09 Le Gay has a ripe, blackcurrant, briary, limestone tinged bouquet with very fine definition, opening up nicely with aeration with hint of orange sorbet and apricot. There is a real explosion of aroma and flavour, offering good depth of succulent fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, slightly chalky yet silky and suave tannins, very fresh and well defined with a beguiling sense of symmetry and focus towards the precise finish. A very good wine for early consumption.

90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Situated on the clay and gravel plateau of Pomerol adjacent to Chateau Petrus, the average age of the vines is over 50 years. The topsoil is gravel with clay and limestone in the substrata. Yields in 2009 were just... Andy Frieden. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Chateau Le Gay Pomerol 1500ml

A rustic earthy style of Bordeaux perfect for those who prefer classic Old World reds. Subtle black fruit is enveloped in leather black pepper dried herbs and loamy soil notes. Great with a juicy extra-rare steak or slow-roasted pork dish.

Blueberry, sea shell and blackberry aromas. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins, yet polished and cool, with a long, racy finish. Dense, with a solid core of everything. Score range: 93-96 -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Chateau Le Gay 1500ml
