A juicy and polished Le Gay with full body and tannins which are nicely melted into the wine. Dark berry, chocolate and spice character. Savory finish. - James Suckling

A step up over the 2020, the 2022 Château Le Gay brings more richness and depth and has a great nose of red and black fruits, flowery incense, baking spices, and scorched earth. Medium to full-bodied, nicely textured, and balanced, it shines for its purity of fruit as well its silky tannins. This should have some early accessibility yet still evolve for decades. - Jeb Dunnuck

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2022 Le Gay swans out with fragrant notions of kirsch, blackberry pie, and baked plums plus hints of forest floor, iron ore, and mossy tree bark. The full-bodied palate is jam packed with black fruit preserves flavors, supported by velvety tannins and well-judged freshness, finishing long with a spicy kick. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent

The 2022 Le Gay is wonderfully aromatic and nuanced from the first impression. Sweet tobacco, cedar, pipe tobacco and dried herbs open first as the Cabernet Franc makes itself felt. Medium in body and graceful, the Le Gay shows the radiance of the year, but is also impeccable in its balance. Sweet floral and spice top notes grace the exquisite finish. Tasted two times. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media

The 2022 Le Gay offers up aromas of rich cassis, menthol and toasty new oak, followed by a full-bodied, rich and rather muscular palate framed by sweet, liberally extracted tannins that assert themselves on the finish. While this remains quite a chunky, stylized wine, defined by its fermentation in new oak barriques, it is comparatively restrained for this estate in such an extreme vintage. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
