2000 Chateau Le Gay
Very soft wine with sweet tannins and ripe red fruits. Florals follow the dark cherry and plum, rose and lavender. Fruits and tannins slightly overbalance the acid – not enough to be flabby, just rich. However, it is a hint the wine is peaking, so if you have some, drink up. Lamb chops would be a nice pairing, particularly if you deglaze the pan with a little of the wine.
