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... 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

Wine Spectator, March 2009
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.

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.
