Nice fruit on the nose medium acid, great balance. Some hints of cedar and berry flavors for the fruit. A great mature Bordeaux. Even after an hour it still held together.
'82 Le Gay: 50/50 merlot cabernet franc: Clear garnet colour,ample body, gentle acidity. Plum and hint of blackcurrant, notes of cedar. Fantastic ! Now fully developed I reckon so drink-up. Not so powerful that you need red meat with it. I had it with roast chicken. Yummy ! (Thank Goodness I still have 2 bottles left.
