Medium ruby-red. Dark berries, chocolate and a hint of menthol on the nose. Lush, broad, ripe and sweet; a very smooth, fine-grained young 2006 that finishes with suave tannins and subtle rising length. 89-91 points Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Chateau Le Gay 1500ml

This has lots of new wood with ripe fruit and hints of coffee and dark fruits. Full-bodied with well-integrated tannins and a slightly chewy finish. Needs time. Much better than from barrel. Best after 2013. 1 250 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator.

Under the administration of Catherine Pere-Verge, Le Gay has become a serious, super-concentrated, potentially long-lived Pomerol. The backward 2006 reveals complex notes of plums, black cherries, truffles, and chocolate in a big, masculine, full-bodied, virile style that begs for cellaring. This dense, chewy, concentrated effort has firmed up considerably, and appears set for a long life.
