2016 La Fleur de Gay, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1299229 91-94 points Vinous

 The 2016 La Fleur de Gay wraps around the palate with striking depth. Mocha, espresso, raspberry jam, rose petal and blood orange all flesh out nicely in the glass. Ripe, silky tannins and pliant fruit give the 2016 its soft contours and feeling of plushness. All the elements fall into place effortlessly. This is a strong showing. (AG)  (4/2017)

91-94 points Wine Spectator

 Gorgeous creamed raspberry and blackberry fruit glides along, carried by a fine mineral edge while letting alluring spice and black tea notes skitter through. Dreamy. (JM)  (4/2017)

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.

France
