This should be a powerful wine, but the power is so tempered by light acidity, poise, even delicacy in the tannins, that at the end the freshness is the principal element
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points
Reminiscent of a grand cru Burgundy, La Fleur de Gay’s 2005 exhibits pure black raspberry fruit intermixed with truffle and kirsch notes. As the wine sits in the glass, toast and charcoal aromas also emerge. This opulent, medium to full-bodied, exceptionally pure Pomerol boasts laser-like precision and finesse. Give it 7-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25 years.
Bright ruby-red. Meaty dark berries and leather on the nose. Dense, sweet and highly concentrated, with very ripe flavors of plum, cassis, licorice and spices. Finishes with dusty but sweet tannins, a cool suggestion of menthol that gives it life, and sneaky length. Range: 89-92
Loads of coffee, blackberry and cherry aromas follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. There's lots of fruit and toasty oak in the aftertaste. Best after 2011.
