90 % Merlot, 10 % Cabernet Franc, 35 hl/ ha. Tiefes Purpur mit opaker Mitte und lila Reflexen. Dichter Waldbeercocktail mit Lakritze und hellem Malz, dahinter Fliedernoten, Brombeerkonfitüre und Burleytabak. Am sublimen Gaumen mit ungeheurer Energie und Kraft, seidige Textur, körniges Extrakt, zarter Schalenton, engmaschiges Tanningerüst, salziges Extrakt und muskulöser Körper. Im konzentrierten Finale mit schwarzbeerige Konturen, dunklem Graphit und fein sandiger Adstringenz. Besser als 2018 und 2019!
This is a young red with great intensity and vision that starts off slowly and builds with energy and verve. It’s so minerally with salty, chalky and spice undertones to the cool and vibrant, purple and subtle-fruit flavors. The tannins are wonderfully toned and polished and build on the palate to deliver something very special.
The 2020 Le Gay needs a little coaxing from the glass, but responds with blackberry, bilberry, pressed iris and subtle brine scents that gain intensity with aeration; the oak is very well integrated. The medium-bodied palate features fine, grainy tannins and beautiful, very pure black fruit tinged with licorice. Superb delineation toward the finish, which fans out with style. This is a wonderful Pomerol, Le Gay fulfilling its potential as one of Pomerol’s dark horses. Superb.
Deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Le Gay erupts from the glass with scents of molten licorice and dark chocolate, giving way to a tantalizing core of baked black cherries, prunes and blackberry preserves, plus a hint of cardamom. The full-bodied palate is rich and decadent, featuring layers of black fruits and exotic spices with a firm yet velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing with epic length. A hedonic powerhouse!

Having been the property of The Demoiselles Robin for sixty years, the château produced on its 6 hectares a wine well known by the most demanding wine lovers. Thérèse and Marie Robin benefitted from a great respect amongst all of the inhabitants of Pomerol, and held high the motto of their father “Quality before Quantity”. Since their establishment, the Vignobles Péré-Vergé manifested another ambition in Pomerol, they decided to invest in one of the premier domains where they finally chose Château Le Gay.
