This is a must buy from lovers of wines from the Pomerol wine appellation of Bordeaux, France. Some say La Fleur de Gay can rival Petrus in its complexity and intensity. Wine writers and critics speak about this wine in Burgundian terms. And there are reasons for this. The vineyard here is very small and composed of three extremely distinctive plots, each with its own unique terroir - similar to the hyper-specific climatsof Burgundy. The first is situated between the Chateaux of Petrus and La Fleur Pétrus and boasts the much-desired blue clay soils. The second is a plot of gravel over clay adjacent to Lafleur. The last is a gravel plot neighboring Chateau Le Pin and Trotanoy offering excellent drainage. The combination of all three plots results in a very unique expression of the Pomerol vineyard. Also, like Burgundy, malolactic conversion occurs in barrel, with additional lees aging, and absolutely no filtration on bottling.

100% Merlot from the estate's oldest vines.

 

"The 2015 La Fleur de Gay is deep garnet-purple in color with a baked plums and blackberry pie nose with black soil, cedar chest and dried herbs hints. The palate is full, muscular and firm with a chewy frame and long, grippy finish with lingering earth notions."
