2019 chateau le gay, pomerol
Why We're Buying
Château Le Gay is a sleepy Pomerol property that has only recently begun recognizing its potential. Under the ownership of Sylvie and Jacques Guinaudeau, the quality and praise for its Bordeaux red blend reached new heights.
The 2019 Château Le Gay is a spicy, already complex, yet structured Pomerol that has some up-front appeal, yet will unquestionably benefit from bottle age. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a medium to full-bodied, ripe, nicely textured Pomerol that has abundant spiced red and black fruits, notes of dried herbs, loamy earth, and spicy oak, ripe, velvety tannins, and plenty of length on the finish. Give bottles 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two decades. It should merit that higher barrel score at maturity. 96+
