who has done so much to raise the level of quality at Chateau Le Gay. From a vineyard well-situated between Le Pin and Trotanoy

La Violette's 2006 is a 100% Merlot cuvee that is running on all cylinders. Considering some of the great old vintages from the fifties and sixties

One of the big stories in 2006 is the resurrection of this once very good Pomerol estate now that it has been purchased by Catherine Pere-Verge, who has done so much to raise the level of quality at Chateau Le Gay. From a vineyard well-situated between Le Pin and Trotanoy, La Violette's 2006 is a 100% Merlot cuvee that is running on all cylinders. Considering some of the great old vintages from the fifties and sixties, it is not surprising to find beautiful purity, fine tannins, and loads of sweet raspberry, black cherry, licorice, and earth notes in this medium-bodied, opulent, luscious effort. It should drink well for 15-20+ years. A brilliant effort!
