Lot #92. La Fleur de Gay 2005

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Bordeaux, Pomerol.
Score: 94 NM.
"Tasted at a vertical at the property, the 2005 La Fleur de Gay is still backward and a little surly on the nose, like many in this vintage, offering glimpses of blackberry, black truffle and crushed stone. The palate is medium-bodied with thick chewy tannins, very dense and powerful, but still broody. There is patently a lot of ripeness towards the finish with its almost honeyed texture and the finish is a little terse. But it does possess superb definition and breeding." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Jul 2013
Provenance: The Clairmont Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $90
