2016 Le Gay, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1299265 98-99 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark One of the best Le Gays in years. Full-bodied and polished with superfine tannins. Layered. Goes on for minutes. Inner quote mark (4/2017)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Le Gay has a rock star nose of flamboyant Black Forest cake, crushed redcurrants and lilacs scents with underlying nuances of yeast extract, wood smoke, iron ore and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, the palate truly struts its stuff with generous black and red fruits and a fantastic line of super ripe tannins, building to a very long, seductively perfumed finish. (LPB) 95+ Inner quote mark (11/2018)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark As with the La Violette, the 2016 Château Le Gay shows a slightly more elegant, structured style yet still packs rocking levels of fruit and texture. Mulled dark fruits, new saddle leather, camphor, and tobacco all give way to a full-bodied Pomerol that has building tannins, solid mid-palate depth, and a great finish. It’s still holding things close to its vest, and while I miss some of the sheer opulence found in vintages such as 2005, 2009, and 2010, this is still going to be brilliant. Hide bottles for 4-5 years and it should shine for two decades or more. 94+ Inner quote mark (2/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This has alluring waves of frankly ripe plum, blackberry and açaí fruit flavors that caress as they move along, pulling flickers of anise, smoldering incense and Christmas pudding along. Showy and hedonistic, but this has structure and definition as it drapes itself on the finish. A lovely wine. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Le Gay has an impressive bouquet of intense black cherry, raspberry, black truffle and smoke aromas that waft temptingly from the glass. The palate is rounded on the entry, and supple, caressing and fleshy in the mouth, offering mocha-tinged red fruit, tobacco and a splash of white pepper toward the quite persistent finish. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)
