Château le Gay Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2011

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

This isnt shy about its toast, with mocha and spice aromas boldly leading the way, but theres serious flesh too, with açaí berry, blueberry and blackberry notes all melded together and driving through the anise-tinged finish. A strong showing. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Chateau Le Gay Pomerol 6000ml

I think others have severely underscored this wine. Espresso, jasmine, sauteed mushrooms and black pepper on the nose, great grip with vanilla, dark chocolate, toast, black olive... long italian roast finish that you'll expect to be on your palate for hours. This is 98% of Chateau Le Dome for a quarter of the price. I'd swear this wine has caffeine in it -- this comes from grapes? Amazing, exciting wine from an overlooked vintage. $60 95 points WKH 95 points

Opened a bottle of the 90 le gay in a casual occasion. aroma was still very outgoing as soon as it was uncorked. it was plummy on the nose, moderate thickness. very soft tannin on the palate and a 10 seconds+ finish. great wine.

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.

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

Full, deep red-ruby. Inviting aromas of blackberry, licorice, violet and mint. Superconcentrated, lush and generous, but with excellent energy to the black fruit and crushed stone flavors. Boasts superb sweetness paired with excellent grip. Reall... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Chateau Le Gay Pomerol 1500ml

Racy blackberry and graphite notes are framed by light toast and mineral in this vibrant, expressive red. The ripe tannins are well-integrated and give backbone to the plush texture. There's beautiful balance, with depth and drive. Drink now through ... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Chateau Le Gay Pomerol 6000ml
