Chateau La Fleur de Gay 2004
Good red-ruby. Plum, smoked meat, caramel, dark chocolate and mocha on the nose. Plush and suave but not overly sweet; rich for the year but without the grip of the most structured vintages. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and lingering sweetness.
A tiny production of only 343 cases (as opposed to 600+) were produced from this 7.5-acre vineyard located in the heart of Pomerol’s famed plateau. The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2004 La Fleur de Gay offers raspberry, blueberry, floral, graphite, and toasty oak characteristics, medium to full body, beautiful richness and purity, and a nicely layered texture. With low acidity, outstanding concentration, and a long finish, this beauty should age effortlessly for 12-15 years.
