Producer Notes

Sebastien Gay is a fifth generation vigneron now making wine at Domaine Michel Gay, but has written enough history at the domaine to last the next five. The domaine started outright under Sebastien's father Michel in 1992 with 6.5 hectares of vineyards. Between 1992 and 2004 small parcels were purchased, and in 1996 a new winery was built. The domaine is now 9.5 hectares.

An impressively light "true" pinot color - notable only because it stands out so visibly against the many other more highly extracted wines from this vintage - with a light rose/garnet center, fading to a blue-ish translucent rim. Nose is bruised dark cherries, mixed with white pepper, fresh and zingy herbal tea and a whiff of new leather. Everything about this screams finesse. Palate is exploding bright pomegranate, pleasing tannins that don't so much loudly announce their presence as quietly tap you on the shoulder and let you know they're there, and the finish is a sing-song of cherry/raspberry herb teas with a bit of sweet honey. Fine acidity runs the length and the seamless nature of this wine speaks class and money with every sip. A new Armani suit in a cherry red Ferrari - this is a head-turner.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
