Ch. La Fleur de Gay (0.75 L)
Tasted at a vertical at the property, the 2002 La Fleur de Gay has an impressive fruit-driven nose for the vintage, very pure and focused with strawberry, raspberry and a touch of cranberry, although it does not express the terroir as well as either the 2000 or 2001. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly dry tannins and it is rather foursquare and straight-laced towards the finish. Where did the flesh and suppleness go? Tasted June 2011.
