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.
Today, still fervently driven by pursuing quality, we use other techniques such as harvesting in several passes, creating smaller plots within some non-uniform plots and favoring cold maceration methods. Each vine is known and recorded. The vineyards are primarily planted with 90% Merlot, although the proportion of Cabernet Franc should increase a little in the net few years.
Nothing is left to chance to ensure that Château Le Gay keeps progressing.
