2015 La Fleur de Gay (750ml)

Merlot from Pomerol, Bordeaux, France


Such finesse and depth to this beautiful young wine with blueberry, blackberry and walnut aromas and flavors. Very, very long. Where it should be in this excellent vintage.

The 2015 La Fleur de Gay is a dark, sumptuous beauty. Beautifully layered and nuanced, the 2015 wraps around the palate in all directions. The 2015 is going to need time to fully come together, but it is striking, even at this early stage. Myriad shades of mocha, black cherry jam, spices and new leather are laced into the deep, resonant finish.

The 2015 La Fleur de Gay was actually more timid on the nose than the La Croix de Gay, possibly due to the higher percentage of new oak used here. Still, with aeration, it is clear that there is more than enough fruit waiting in the wings. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, lithe in the mouth and well balanced with layers of licorice-tinged black fruit. Perhaps it does not require all that new wood on the finish, but I suspect it will be absorbed with 4-6 years in bottle.

This has range, with plum, anise, blueberry and blackberry notes slowly melding together. There is still a dose of toast to soak up, but this shows fleshy drive through the finish.
