    What the experts say...

    Il arbore un rubis-pourpre dense et resplendissant, et déploie un nez de minéral et de pain grillé. Celui-ci, marqué par des touches de prune, révèle encore de généreuses senteurs de cerise noire et de cassis, mêlées de notes vanillées diffusées par le chêne neuf. Ce vin, moyennement corsé, révèle, outre des arômes de cassis, des tannins abondants, ainsi qu'un caractère impressionnant de pureté, de profondeur et de longueur. Source : Robert Parker (11/97)

    Cuvée presentation

    La Fleur de Gay is the domaine's grande cuvée, designed to rival the icons of Pomerol. The wine is produced from a plot of very old Merlot vines, located between Petrus and Lafleur. 18 months' ageing in new barrels results in a fruity wine with great purity and a wonderful richness. Very aromatic, intense and full-bodied, the wine reaches maturity after between five and twenty years, depending on the vintage.
