Palate Profile

Château Le Gay produces a concentrated, full-bodied Pomerol. Its bets after cellaring for at least ten years so that its tannins can soften and reveal a magnificent velvety fleshiness and clean finish.

What gives Château le Gay its strength is undoubtedly that its terroir is located next door to Lafleur. Up until her death in 2013, Catherine Péré-Vergé worked to raise Le Gay so that it became one of the finest crus of this appellation. Her very talented son Henri Parent now looks after the cru, with Michel Rolland as consultant.

 

Critic Awards

Here's a complex, rich wine that has fine acidity as well as ripe blackberry fruits. It's certainly firmly structured, but it has the flesh to support it.

Excellent depth and balance for the vintage with blackberry, dark chocolate and mineral character. Full body, harmonious and well crafted

Well defined, quite fresh bouquet with vivacious crushed strawberry and red cherry aromas, a little cold stone just underneath, almost Pinot Noir-like in personality. This is a lovely 2013 as I found in barrel, with a lilting red berry and spice finish that leaves you wanting to take another sip.
