- A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Aged in 100% new oak.
“The 2014 Le Gay is blessed with a fabulous bouquet of brambly red berry fruit tinged with black truffle, roasted chestnut and just a hint of hung game. There is marvelous energy here, the aromatics keeping you engaged. The palate is medium-bodied with superb purity, certainly very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. Sure, there is a veneer of vanilla oak to be assimilated on the finish, but there is such depth and persistence that this will be no problem. This surpasses my expectations from barrel and continues the fine form of this Pomerol estate.”

“The 2014 Le Gay is soft, silky and inviting. Crushed flowers, sweet tobacco, mint, licorice and dried cherry are nicely layered. Today, the 2014 shows quite a bit less density than it did as a barrel sample. I had hoped it would fill out a bit more over time, but that has not happened yet.”
