Fresh bright red and black fruit aromas with a hint of soft caramel. Beautiful floral notes of violet and lilac are touched by a hint of mint and sweet basil with light black truffle. New oak on the front of the palate quickly gives way to the lush full dark cherry and blackberry. The tannins are very present yet ripe and easily approachable. Toasty coffee and toffee and vanilla notes linger on the palate. This wine is a great follow up to their beautiful '05 and a highlight of this vintage. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

Complex nose with aromas of coffee truffle raspberry dark chocolate and baking spice. The super smooth silky palate flavors of layered red and black fruits cedar forest floor rocky minerality and pencil lead show good persistence. This classic Bordeaux is a pleasure to drink! Enjoy now and over the next 8 years.

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. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025+

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. 1250 cases... 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.
