1 bottle Chateau Le Gay 2010
99/100 Robert Parker:
The 2010 Le Gay is performing sensationally, even better than my wildly enthusiastic tasting notes from barrel might have predicted. Inky opaque purple, and presenting a formidable and foreboding nose of camphor, black truffles, graphite, blueberries and blackberries as well as hints of smoked meats and floral nuances. Just about everything seems to be present in this smorgasbord of aromatics delights. The wine hits the palate with power, richness and purity, full-bodied texture, and enormous intensity. The final blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. This wine needs at least 8-10 years of cellaring, based on its masculinity and structure, and should easily eclipse 20-40 years in a good cellar.
93/100 Lisa Perrotti-Brown:
Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Le Gay rolls out of the glass with notes of dried mulberries, prunes and figs plus nuances of cedar chest, bay leaves and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives just enough maturing fruit flavors to match the sturdy frame, finishing on a stewed tea note.
