2015 Le Gay

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2015
Appellation: Pomerol
95-96 (JS)
The brilliant Chateau Le Gay was the most significant project of the late, great ‘Lady of Pomerol’ Catherine Pere-Verge. Catherine was a fiercely competitive businesswoman and her wine business, which became her all-consuming passion, was no different. To quote Neal Martin “she is unequivocally dedicated to her properties and patently has an unrequited desire to produce great Pomerol wine.” Chateau Le Gay was previously owned by the Robin sisters (who also owned Lafleur) before the eldest sister passed in 2001 with no direct heir; it was then purchased in a move that sent shock waves through Bordeaux by Catherine Pere-Verge, the daughter of a French industrialist, who had already begun her winemaking journey with Chateau Montviel. Catherine’s famously high standards and drive to create the best possible wines helped to shape the modern Le Gay, which has been run by her son Henri Parent since her death in 2013. With huge vineyard renovation and replanting, parcel-by-parcel vinification and the genius palate of Michel Rolland consulting on the blend, Le Gay has never been in better shape.

Tasting Notes and Scores

94-95

Bordeaux Index

One of the most underrated wines from the Pomerol 'plateau'. Ripe, dense and complex to smell, deep soy notes lifted by floral, spice characters. Supple, sweet palate, well structured and complex with layers of rich fruit. Lively mid-palate and fine length. Excellent. (90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.)

94-96

Neal Martin

The 2015 Le Gay comes from the 6.5-hectare Pomerol estate, of which 2.09 hectares are currently being restructured. It is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc picked from 27 September until 8 October at one degree lower alcohol than Montviel; it has a fragrant bouquet with delineated red cherries, crushed strawberry and hints of vanilla from the 100% new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, ripe and rounded in the mouth, very well balanced and very smooth. This just glides across the mouth and once that new oak has been absorbed, this will be a gorgeous Le Gay to behold. Do not overlook this Cru because it has been on a roll in recent years.

93-96

Wine Spectator

Goes for a showy style and pulls it off, with a cashmere feel to the layers of warm fig, blackberry coulis and plum reduction. Ganache and warm espresso notes line the hedonistic finish.

– James Molesworth (WineSpectator.com, April 2016)

95-96

James Suckling

A tight and racy red with walnut skin, pecan nuts, chili and spice. Blackberry. Full body, round texture. Chewy. Very promising. Like the great Le Gays from the 1980s.

Jancis Robinson

Polished crimson. Some freshness on the nose though clearly very ripe and sweet too. Creamy and spicy. Just the right side of overripe. A little bit severe and yeast-extracty on the end. But there is lots humming away here on the palate. I may be underscoring this wine. Drink 2025-2040.
