Average critic rating : 90.0 points



Herbaceous, with not enough fruit depth or glycerin to balance out the rustic, astringent tannins, the 1990 Le Gay offers some pleasant black currant and cherry fruit, but it seems relatively young. It will probably become more attenuated with additional cellaring. Release price: ($400.00/case) Wine Advocate.June, 2009



Closed and tight yet very concentrated, with muscular tannins. Dark ruby color. Cool stone, berry, cherry and mineral aromas. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long finish.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2005. 2,000 cases made. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2000
