Although still backward, the 1975 Le Gay is an impressively extracted wine that is beginning to reveal some aromatic development. Sweet, overripe aromas of black-cherries intermingled with scents of minerals and earth, are followed by a powerful, muscular, tannic, large-scaled wine that remains immature. The color is a healthy dark garnet/ruby with no amber at the edge. Although it is excruciatingly tannic, the high extraction of fruit remains a positive sign. This old style, blockbuster wine is reminiscent of certain 1948s and 1945s. Whether it ever sheds its tannin and becomes completely harmonious is highly debatable (I don't think it will), but there are copious quantities of sweet, exotic fruit.
