However, do not discount this 2007. Yields were only 25 hectoliters per hectare, and the final blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc achieved 13.5% natural alcohol. There are just over 1,000 cases of this wine due to a severe selection. The wine exhibits fabulous blackberry and mulberry fruit intermixed with notions of graphite, charcoal, truffle, and incense. Medium to full-bodied, deep, and lush, with some structure, but not the masculinity and tannic power that most vintages of Le Gay possess, this 2007 will benefit from several years of bottle age, and should drink well for 15+. Bravo! - Robert Parker

Lively with a fruity core. Real life to this and the fruit almost completely disguises some pretty dry, sandy tannins. Picked 30 Sep and 1 Oct. One of last on the plateau, we are told. 17+/20

Lovely mineral driven aromas of crushed fruit raspberry blackberry and mocha. Nice and round going in and remains soft and plush all the way through its expressive and delightful finish. Well balanced everything is in place with nothing out of place. Pure velvet and beautifully textured. Winner winner chicken dinner.
