A floral and very elegant wine with an aroma of well matured fruits. In the glass it reveals a fenomenal finesse and a pallet of tastes and aromas. It is balanced, soft and round with a light and fine finish, which slightly fades away, leaving a memorable feeling.

More about this wine

Château Le Gay

Château Le Gay

Chateau Le Gay is in Pomerol, the smallest wine region in Bordeaux. The vineyards cover an area of 10.5 hectares, planted with 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, aged 40 years. Clay and gravelly soils, as well as extremely low yields, contribute to a complex and full-bodied wine. Aged in 100% new French oak for 18-20 months. The entire production was renewed in 2014. The sharp jump in the level of their wine began with the 2005 harvest. Today, it is a wine with a depth, character and ability to age that exceed its price.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.

Merlot

Merlot

Southwest of France is Merlot’s birthplace - the regions of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. Merlot is nowadays widely planted across the world much like Cabernet Sauvignon because it is an early maturing grape variety and because of its ability to ripen fully even in slightly cooler climates. Smooth, velvety, soft and rounded - an “easy drinking" wine with tender tannic structure - these are the common descriptions of Merlot wines.
