About Chateau La Fleur de Gay:

Chateau La Fleur de Gay is owned by the Raynaud and Lebreton families. Chateau La Fleur de Gay made its official debut in 1982. However, the first true vintage for the wine was made the following year in 1983. The initial vintages contained a small portion of Cabernet Franc. That soon changed. They stopped blending in any Cabernet Franc and from that time forward, the wine was quickly made from only 100% old vine Merlot.
