The 2011 Le Gay exhibits a deep ruby/blue/purple color in addition to a sumptuous nose of spring flowers, blueberries and raspberries, deep, full-bodied, slightly masculine flavors, and sensational purity, richness and texture. It is another impressive 2011 Pomerol that has the guts, stuffing and structure to age for 15-20 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

Tasted at the property and then at the Syndicat de Pomerol. The Le Gay is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc picked on 16th September. It has a well defined bouquet with ripe dark cherries, cassis and crushed violet: a more feminine take on Le Gay. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannins on the entry. It has good acidity and weight. It does not present the explosion on the finish like the 2009 or 2010, but it is linear and controlled, quite reserved even. Excellent, although there is a metallic note lingering on the aftertaste that I hope will dissipate by the time of bottling. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Soft and velvety with lovely ripe tannins and a citrus, mineral and blueberry character. Long and intense. Nicely done for the vintage. jamessuckling.com

This isn't shy about its toast, with mocha and spice aromas boldly leading the way, but there's serious flesh too, with açaí berry, blueberry and blackberry notes all melded together and driving through the anise-tinged finish. A strong showing. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Engaging wine. Deep colour. Reticent red/dark fruit nose. Lovely purity of fruit, super texture and a firm, long finish. Drink 2018-2028. (17 points). Decanter.com
