1999 le Gay

Average critic rating : 86.0 points



I underrated the 1999 Le Gay in last year's Wine Advocate. Plum, earth, and black cherry scents intermix with licorice and soil overtones. The wine is medium-bodied, with surprisingly soft tannin for Le Gay, and more ripeness and length than I recall tasting over the last several years. It should drink well for a dozen or more years. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 140



Fresh aromas of berries and violets, with hints of minerals. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a light, fruity, tobacco aftertaste. Best after 2003. 1,500 cases made. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2002
