Tasting Notes Chateau le Gay 2017

93-95

The deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Le Gay is youthfully mute, opening with black cherries, wild blueberries and mulberry scents with suggestions of violets, licorice and black soil. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers beautifully delineated fruit with oodles of freshness and firm yet beautifully ripe tannins, finishing very long and perfumed.

Very pretty and refined with an excellent depth of fruit and attraction. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh and subtle finish. Shows elegance.

This has some eye-opening toasty depths, with warm ganache and vanilla notes leading the way for a very polished core of plum preserve flavors. A bit monochromatic, but it is a pretty color.—J.M.

The 2017 Le Gay is dark, sensual and totally alluring. Crème de cassis, menthol, violet, spice and licorice build as this racy, succulent Pomerol shows off its personality and class. Even with all of its intensity, the 2017 retains terrific freshness. A wine of serious depth and concentration, the 2017 is going to need time to fully come together. A closing blast of chocolate, plum, leather and mocha makes a strong statement. This is very nicely done. Tasted two times.

The 2017 Le Gay has a strong whiff of the sea coming from the glass, brine and a little Japanese nori (seaweed) that is neatly sutured into the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a little oaky at the moment with dark chocolate and a little leather tincturing the black and red fruit. It just feels a little predictable on the finish whereas the best recent vintages of Le Gay have fanned out and demonstrated more precision. Nevertheless, Le Gay often blossoms during its élevage so this might surprise when in bottle.
