Tasting Notes

The 2014 Le Gay is the normal blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, and it’s a rich, surprisingly structured and tannic wine in the vintage. Deep purple/plum colored with a great bouquet of black cherries, plums, chocolate and tobacco leaf, this medium to full-bodied, concentrated, chewy 2014 should be given 3-4 years of bottle age and enjoyed over the following 20-25 years. I’ve always loved the wines from this tiny estate in Pomerol, and both the 2014 and 2015 are wines worth seeking out. While not reviewed here, readers should try to find bottles of the 2009. This is an incredible bottle of wine that’s up with some of the finest wines out there.

The 2014 Le Gay is blessed with a fabulous bouquet of brambly red berry fruit tinged with black truffle, roasted chestnut and just a hint of hung game. There is marvelous energy here, the aromatics keeping you engaged. The palate is medium-bodied with superb purity, certainly very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. Sure, there is a veneer of vanilla oak to be assimilated on the finish, but there is such depth and persistence that this will be no problem. This surpasses my expectations from barrel and continues the fine form of this Pomerol estate.

Blueberry-skin and stone aromas follow through to a medium body, firm tannins and a juicy finish. Shy but still shows wonderful depth and polish. Better in 2021.
