  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 85

    Fresh aromas of berries and violets, with hints of minerals. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a light, fruity, tobacco aftertaste. 1,500 cases made.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 87

    I underrated the 1999 Le Gay in last year's Wine Advocate. Plum, earth, and black cherry scents intermix with licorice and soil overtones. The wine is medium-bodied, with surprisingly soft tannin for Le Gay, and more ripeness and length than I recall tasting over the last several years. It should drink well for a dozen or more years.

    Medium-deep red. Cool but aromatic nose of black cherry, blueberry, clove, nutmeg and iron, along with floral and herbal nuances. Supple and moderately ripe, with good vinosity and framing acidity. Not especially open today, but ultimately a wine of only modest sweetness of fruit and ripeness.

    Past its best and should be drunk now. Rather simple.
