Château La Fleur de Gay 2015


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. – Wine Advocate

Winery Profile:
Châteaux La Fleur de Gay and La Croix de Gay are two properties owned by the same family living in Pomerol since 1477. This two châteaux on six hectares of vineyard illustrate our burgundian vision of the Pomerol’s terroirs.Each plot of our vineyard is for us a distinct « climat ». However due to our Bordeaux culture of blend and our family knowledge of our plots we choose to make two separates synergic blends aged and bottled under two separates châteaux brands. In this way, two different expressions of the greats terroirs of Pomerol can be distinguished : château La Fleur de Gay et château La Croix de Gay. Like in burgundy the terms « Grand Cru » and « Premier Cru » may be choose to describe their relationship. One is not the « tęte de cuvée » or the second wine of the other.
