An elegant red wine from Pomerol with a rich aromatic palette

The estate

Chateau Le Gay is located in the Pomerol appellation. Having belonged to the Robin sisters, renowned and respected throughout Pomerol for their know-how and their father's famous motto "Quality surpasses quantity", Chateau Le Gay is currently one of the most beautiful wine estates on the right bank of Bordeaux.

The vineyard

Chateau Le Gay comprises a 10.5-hectare single-block vineyard. The vines are 40 years old on average and are planted on the exceptional clay and gravel soils, for which the Pomerol appellation is well-known.

Vinification and aging

During the manual harvest, the grapes are sorted both by bunch and by grape. Long maceration. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in barrels, as is the 18-month aging period.

The blend

Chateau Le Gay 2012 is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This is a beautiful, dense, meaty, purple-colored wine, with loads of earth, iron, blackberry and cassis fruit. It is full-bodied, rich and opulent with great length, terrific purity and surprisingly sweeter tannin than I would expect from this terroir that tends to produce a masculine style of wine. Impressive and backward, this Le Gay should drink well for at least 20 years.
