Château Le Gay

This 6.50ha estate is situated to the north of the Pomerol plateau and is in a rich seam of form in recent vintages, with micro-vinification of each individual plot.

Tasting Notes

"Deep purple-black coloured, the 2020 Le Gay erupts from the glass with scents of molten liquorice and dark chocolate, giving way to a tantalizing core of baked black cherries, prunes and blackberry preserves, plus a hint of cardamom. The full-bodied palate is rich and decadent, featuring layers of black fruits and exotic spices with a firm yet velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing with epic length. A hedonic powerhouse! Drink date 2025 - 2048." 94-96+/100 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

Vinification

Yields of 35hl/ha and aged in 100% oak barrels for 18 months
