2006 Le Gay, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)
93 points Robert Parker: "Under the administration of Catherine Pere-Verge, Le Gay has become a serious, super-concentrated, potentially long-lived Pomerol. The backward 2006 reveals complex notes of plums, black cherries, truffles, and chocolate in a big, masculine, full-bodied, virile style that begs for cellaring. This dense, chewy, concentrated effort has firmed up considerably, and appears set for a long life. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025+" (02/09) K&L's notes - 90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc. At the property-only 1,000 cases produced. Lush and sweet mouth feel. Blackberry flavors-long on the palate. Quite elegant. *+ Ralph Sands: Really lovely deep ripe fruit, very silky with fine tannins. Superb! Please note - 2006 Bordeaux futures are not in stock, but will arrive between Jan 2009 and Dec 2009. We will contact you for shipping instructions.
