Tasted at the château, the 2006 Le Gay has an intriguing, attractive bouquet with secondary aromas of truffle and dried blood, an almost ferrous verging on animally aroma that renders it a little rustic compared to other vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, savory in the mouth with a touch of bacon fat infusing the red fruit, just a touch of dryness perhaps on the finish, but this is still a great Le Gay that has the structure to suggest it will give another 15 years of pleasure. It will not improve further, but it will hold strong for a few years yet. Tasted March 2016. - Neal Martin

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.

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.

Pale ruby with a watery rim. 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... Pale ruby with a watery rim. 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.
