Chateau La Fleur de Gay 2013

A smooth and elegant red wine from Pomerol

The estate

Owned by the Raynaud-Lebreton family and with origins dating back to 1477, Château La Fleur de Gay is located on the medieval road that goes from Saint-Émilion to Guitres. The estate is located on what used to be the historic village of Pomerol, the hamlet of Pignon, to the north of the appellation.

The vineyard

A benchmark among Pomerol wines, Château La Fleur de Gay reigns over a 2-hectare vineyard that spreads over three parcels on the high terrace of the appellation.

Vinification and ageing

Manual harvesting followed by a rigorous sorting in the vat room. Alcoholic fermentation and post-fermentation maceration in temperature-controlled cement vats for 3 to 4 weeks. Malolactic fermentation and 18 months of ageing in new barrels (100%).

The blend

Château La Fleur de Gay 2013 is a blend of Merlot (75%) and Cabernet Franc (25%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This production of 5,500 bottles, from proprietor Chantel Lebreton, is made from 100% Merlot in tiny yields, 22.5 hectoliters per hectare. Everything was harvested from this 7.5-acre vineyard on September 30 and October 1. The wine has an attractive, bluish/plum color, notes of red fruits, licorice, a touch of incense and spring flowers, and medium-bodied flavors with a superficial texture. It has sweet tannins and enough acidity for vibrancy, but not to be annoying. Drink over the next 6-7 years.
