Wine Spectator: Goes for a showy style and pulls it off, with a cashmere feel to the layers of warm fig, blackberry coulis and plum reduction. Ganache and warm espresso notes line the hedonistic finish. 93 - 96 Points
Wine Advocate: The 2015 Le Gay comes from the 6.5-hectare Pomerol estate, of which 2.09 hectares are currently being restructured. It is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc picked from 27 September until 8 October at one degree lower alcohol than Montviel; it has a fragrant bouquet with delineated red cherries, crushed strawberry and hints of vanilla from the 100% new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, ripe and rounded in the mouth, very well balanced and very smooth. This just glides across the mouth and once that new oak has been absorbed, this will be a gorgeous Le Gay to behold. Do not overlook this Cru because it has been on a roll in recent years. 94 - 96 Points
A tight and racy red with walnut skin, pecan nuts, chili and spice. Blackberry. Full body, round texture. Chewy. Very promising. Like the great Le Gays from the 1980s. 95 - 96 Points
With part of his vineyard near the famous Château Lafleur , so on a very qualitative clay terroir and serious on limestone bedrock, the Château Le Gay is a flagship reference of the Pomerol appellation. It belongs to Pere-Verge family, under the direction of Henri Parent. The area is advised by the oenologist Michel Rolland, who contributed greatly to its development. The 10-hectare vineyard is planted to 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
