Drink now or cellar for up to 11 years. No need to decant before serving.

Chateau Le Gay is one of the Pomerol appellation’s rising stars thanks to the vision of Catherine Pere-Verge who bought the property for $25 million back in 2002. At the time of purchase the chateau had been underperforming for many years, and one of the Pere-Verge family’s first decisions was to increase their vineyard holdings by planting an extra 3.4 hectares on land not being used for vine growing.

In 2014 the property passed to Catherine’s son, Henri Parent, who completely renovated the winemaking facilities to create space for more barrels. This has enabled the chateau to focus on verifying each parcel of vines separately and conducting micro-vinifications to give more control and greater quality in their wines.

Manoir de Gay is the estate’s second wine which is produced from their younger Merlot vines, plus a small proportion of Cabernet Franc. The yields are kept very low and the winemakers use micro-vinification to create a perfectly-balanced cuvee which accurately reflects the terroir and the character of the vintage. It’s a remarkably accessible wine even in its youth, with luscious dark fruit notes and smooth tannins, although it can also be kept for at least another decade or so.
