The freshness and fleshiness of a Pomerol Grand Cru

Driven by the enthusiasm and passion of the late Catherine Pere-Verge, Chateau Le Gay has become one of the most beautiful estates in the prestigious Pomerol appellation on the right bank of the Bordeaux region.

Catherine Pere-Verge’s son, Henri Parent, runs the estate now. Chateau Le Gay is a benchmark consisting of wines that are distinguished by their generous, fleshy fruit.

Chateau Le Gay 2017 is a testament to the skills of its technical team that follow the precision and rigor Catherine Pere-Verge established at the estate. From the vineyard to the winery, nothing has been left to chance and every step during the elaboration of the wines receives constant attention.

Merlot (90%) dominates the blend and is complemented with Cabernet Franc (10%). Chateau Le Gay 2017 is among the most beautiful expressions of this vintage that has come to be called a “winemaker’s” vintage.

The intensity and freshness of the fruit carry through to the mid-palate with finesse, which then reveal perfectly balanced and structured tannins. Chateau Le Gay 2017 reveals the greatness of the Pomerol terroir by perfectly capturing the expression of each parcel that is blended into the wine. A Pomerol of perfect craftsmanship.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Le Gay is youthfully mute, opening with black cherries, wild blueberries and mulberry scents with suggestions of violets, licorice and black soil. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers beautifully delineated fruit with oodles of freshness and firm yet beautifully ripe tannins, finishing very long and perfumed.
