Ideally situated on the Pomerol plateau, Château Le Gay used to be owned by the Robin sisters. The Parent family took over the château and its 10,5 hectares in 2002.

Since the, the vineyard and cellar have been constantly evolving. Four new hectares of high-density vines were planted, and more than half of the rest of the plateau land was also restructured. Convinced that "vinification intégrale" fermentation enhances quality, Henri Parent began renovating the Château Le Gay cellar in 2014 (despite its recent renovation in 2003) in order to control the temperature of the 250 barrels during the cold maceration process, as well aw during their fermentation process.

Rating: 95+ points from Robert Parker
" Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Le Gay has a rock star nose of flamboyant Black Forest cake, crushed redcurrants and lilacs scents with underlying nuances of yeast extract, wood smoke, iron ore and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, the palate truly struts its stuff with generous black and red fruits and a fantastic line of super ripe tannins, building to a very long, seductively perfumed finish." - Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Château Le Gay位於波爾多的波美侯(Pomerol)高地,原先是由羅賓姐妹擁有。2002年,Parent家族接管了這座城堡和它的10.5公頃葡萄園。

從那時起,葡萄園和酒窖一直在不斷發展。他們種植了四公頃的高密度葡萄藤,並對其餘的半個高地土地進行了重組。亨利·Parent相信“整合酒精發酵”能提高品質,於是在2014年對Château Le Gay的酒窖進行了翻新,以控制250個酒桶在冷浸泡過程中以及發酵過程中的溫度。

羅伯特·帕克(Robert Parker)評分:95+

“中等至深的石榴紅色。2016年的Le Gay有著超凡的香氣,展現出令人驚艷的黑森林蛋糕、碎紅醋栗和紫丁香的香氣,並帶有酵母提取物、煙熏木、鐵礦石和黑巧克力的底層細微氣息。中等至飽滿的酒體,口感豐盈,展現出慷慨的黑色和紅色水果,以及極佳的超熟單寧,最終帶來極長、迷人的香氣收結。”- Lisa Perrotti-Brown評論
