Its reigning grape variety, the Merlot, produces its full expression and in Pomerol, for the savvy, one speaks of the plateau, saint of saints where we find Le Gay amongst the most prestigious of crus » Michel Rolland.
Having been the property of the Robin Demoiselles for sixty years, the château produced on its 6 hectares a wine well known by the most demanding wine lovers. Thérèse and Marie Robin benefitted from a great respect amongst all of the inhabitants of Pomerol, and held high the motto of their father « Quality before Quantity ».
Catherine Péré-Vergé, kindly nicknamed « La Dame de Pomerol », had lived in Pomerol since 1985, where she provided all of the measure of her energy and her motivation by undertaking a vast investment project for her château Montviel property.
Since this establishment, the Vignobles Péré-Vergé manifested another ambition in Pomerol, they decided to invest in one of the premier domains and they finally chose Château Le Gay, located close by the Châteaux La Fleur, Pétrus, L’Evangile and Vieux Certan.
When Catherine passed away in April 2013, the reins of the reborn Chateau Le Gay were passed to her son Henri Parent, who is now responsible for all of Catherine’s Pomerol empire, including Château La Violette, Château Tristan and Château Montviel in Pomerol, as well as Château La Gravière in Lalande de Pomerol.
