2003 le Gay

Average critic rating : 90.0 points



Readers should take note of the dramatic jump in quality at Le Gay under the relatively new proprietor, Madame Pere-Verge. This property, situated between Petrus and Lafleur, has enormous potential, and it’s good to see it finally being fully exploited. The 2003 has turned out as well as I had hoped. A strong effort in a problematic vintage for Pomerol, it exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as a bouquet of blue and black fruits interwoven with licorice, crushed rocks, and cold steel. This terroir-based wine possesses impressively concentrated flavors, medium to full body, and moderate tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020+. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 164



Complex aromas of blackberry, olives, flowers and lightly toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Pretty and refined. Best after 2010. 1,250 cases made. James Suckling,Wine Spectator2006
