Other Reviews....
This is a beautiful, dense, meaty, purple-colored wine, with loads of earth, iron, blackberry and cassis fruit. It is full-bodied, rich and opulent with great length, terrific purity and surprisingly sweeter tannin than I would expect from this terroir that tends to produce a masculine style of wine. Impressive and backward, this Le Gay should drink well for at least 20 years.

This is dense and polished with refined tannins and beautiful fruit. Full-bodied yet reserved and elegant. Very long and attractive. Better in 2018.

Bright medium red. Captivating, fruit-driven aromas of black cherry and flinty blackcurrant complicated by iron, licorice and spices. Generous and sweet on entry, then firm in the middle, with sweet blackcurrant and mocha flavors. Features broad, dusty tannins and building sweetness on the long, floral finish.
