Another example of how great 2009 Pomerol is going to be. Pure bottled sex, with its layers of opulent, polished, glycerine filled, ripe, sweet, dark berries, chocolate, earth, licorice, blueberry and floral notes. Rich, plush and hedonistic, when mature, it\'s quite possible the s wine should increase in score. This should turn out to be the best vintage of La Fleur de Gay yet!

Chateau La Fleur de Gay is usually better with at least 7-9 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau La Fleur de Gay offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 9-22 years of age after the vintage.
