The deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Le Gay is youthfully mute, opening with black cherries, wild blueberries and mulberry scents with suggestions of violets, licorice and black soil. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers beautifully delineated fruit with oodles of freshness and firm yet beautifully ripe tannins, finishing very long and perfumed.

Very pretty and refined with an excellent depth of fruit and attraction. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh and subtle finish. Shows elegance.

Beautiful purple, vibrantly colored, the 2017 Le Gay offers loads of classic cassis and cherry fruit, medium to full body, building floral and minerality, ripe, integrated tannin, and a great finish. It's a fresh, elegant, silky 2017 that should evolve for 15-20 years. This estate wasn’t hit by the April frost and they’ve produced a head turner of a Pomerol.

This is a dense, opulent wine—the epitome of the Pomerol appellation. It is generous and open, with great dark fruits and integrated tannins that will allow the wine to age. Drink from 2024.

This has some eye-opening toasty depths, with warm ganache and vanilla notes leading the way for a very polished core of plum preserve flavors. A bit monochromatic, but it is a pretty color.

91-94 points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator (2018)

The 2017 Le Gay is dark, sensual and totally alluring. Crème de cassis, menthol, violet, spice and licorice build as this racy, succulent Pomerol shows off its personality and class. Even with all of its intensity, the 2017 retains terrific freshness. A wine of serious depth and concentration, the 2017 is going to need time to fully come together. A closing blast of chocolate, plum, leather and mocha makes a strong statement. This is very nicely done. Tasted two times.
