Outer quote mark Showing beautifully in my tastings, the 2017 Chateau Le Gay makes the most of this solid vintage. Almost all Merlot from a great terroir on the plateau of Pomerol, it reveals a purple/ruby hue as well as medium to full-bodied notes of black cherry and cassis fruits, toasted spice, spring flowers, and damp earth. Shining more for its complexity and elegance than sheer power, it nevertheless has wonderful fruit, plenty of tannins, and a great finish. Give bottles 4-5 years of bottle age and enjoy over the following 15-20 years. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

Outer quote mark A whiff of mocha curls around the plum, blackberry and boysenberry compote flavors, while ganache, roasted apple wood and graphite details course through the finish. Shows lots of range and depth. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium to deep garnet-purple colored,the 2017 Le Gay offers a very serious, classic notes of plum preserves, mulberries and baked black cherries with hints of tilled soil, cloves, cedar chest and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has firm, grippy tannins and plenty of muscular fruit, finishing on a stewed tea note. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

Agree fully with Jeff Leve's previous post. Nice but just starting to show and soften. Will probably hold a few years before trying again. Would guess it will merit a higher score. Marshalc
