La Grande Maison Younan Collection acquired Chateau Zaya, formerly Chateau la Garelle, with a goal to create an impressive wine in Bordeaux, France at an attractive price. Chateau Zaya's 2017 vintage marks the renewal of this beautiful estate under a new management team, which combines tradition and inspiration.
Bordeaux is a famed wine-growing region where wine enthusiasts gather to share the passion for winemaking. Covering 9.3 hectares of land (over 22 acres), Chateau Zaya is located in Saint-Émilion Grand Cru appellation of Bordeaux. Chateau Zaya specializes in a Merlot-dominant varietal, which remains one of the most admired and collected wines.
Part of its allure and its distinctive nose comes from the rich limestone soil. Workers tend the vines and hand-pick the leaves off the stems so the berries can soak up the July sun. Effective methods are used including temperature-controlled cellars to control the vinification process. A longer maturation period is employed to speed up fermentation and add flavor and richer color.
This process has been introduced since Chateau Zaya joined LGMYC to make exemplary wines and ensure quality taste. The future of Chateau Zaya will be to grow as one of the most sought after wines in Bordeaux, France. Chateau Zaya will produce properly-aged, quality wines for anyone seeking luxury at an affordable price point, and worthy of the LGMYC name.
