The 2015 Manoir de Gay comes from 12-year-old Merlot vines from Le Gay. It has a fresh and vibrant, violet-scented bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, gentle grip in the mouth, just a touch of spice here, but good structured towards the finish - a hint of truffle on the aftertaste.
Nose: violet, rose, truffle, earth, coffee and leather
Palate: currant, black cherry, plum, bell pepper, olive, oak, smoke, toast and tar
