Tasted at Chateau Le Gay. This is reticent on the nose: light blackberry leaf and a touch of earth. The palate is well balanced with, fine, quite sturdy tannins, great clarity here that is impressive for a second wine, leading to a very elegant, tensile finish. This is very fine for a Deuxieme vin with a hint of freshly rolled tobacco on the aftertaste. Tasted April 2010.

Racy and fruity, with berry and mineral character and hints of flint. Medium- to full-bodied, with a solid tannin structure and a long finish. A serious second wine
