Lot #99. Le Gay 2005

Description: Consists of 4 Magnums, 1.5L
Region: France, Bordeaux, Pomerol.
Score: 95+ RP.
"The finest Le Gay produced since the post World War II era, the 2005 even eclipses the fabulous 1982 and 1989. This inky/purple-hued effort reflects the commitment of proprietress Catherine Pere-Verge. An extraordinary perfume of blueberries, blackberries, flowers, truffles, and a touch of steely minerality is followed by a massive wine of exceptional concentration, a multilayered texture, phenomenal purity, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. It is a massive, old style, pure, rich Pomerol that should only be purchased by patient connoisseurs as gratification will need to be deferred for at least a decade" Wine Advocate #176, Apr 2008
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $750
