2001 le Gay

Average critic rating : 90.5 points



Dark ruby/purple, with notes of black raspberries, damp earth, minerals, plums, and a hint of mushrooms, this is a strong effort from Le Gay. It displays medium body, moderate tannin, and none of the rusticity that recent vintages have often possessed. Nevertheless, patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017.||Note: This tasting note is based on a barrel tasting done in 2003. I did not have an opportunity to retaste this wine from bottle. Wine Advocate.June, 2004



Beautiful aromas of blackberries, licorice, violets and berries. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a gorgeous finish. Very serious for the vintage. This is as good as, if not better than, the outstanding 2000. Le Gay is back. Best after 2008. 1,440 cases made. James Suckling,Wine Spectator2004
