    Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

    94-95 JS / 92-95 WS / 94 DE / 91-93 JD / 89-91 WA

    The gorgeous balance on the center palate makes this one of the best wines from here in years. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful yet subtle finish. Fine. - James Suckling

    Intense, with a focused beam of boysenberry and cassis flavors, laced with anise and black tea notes. Very supple through the vintage, but lacks the vintage's typically overt grip. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

    The colour is still almost a primeur purple, rich, vibrant and violet-edged. The nose is youthful but majestic and full of promise, with smoky caramel, liquorice and dark chocolate. Gorgeous floral notes spiral out of the glass after five minutes. That the wine is full of inky depths, generous but withholding at the same time, showcases the ability of Pomerol to taste good young without sacrificing an ability to age. This is one of the great wines of Pomerol. 100% new oak. - Jane Anson, Decanter

    The deep ruby/purple-hued 2018 Château La Fleur De Gay is another sweetly fruited, sexy, yet also elegant Pomerol that does everything right. Possessing a rockingly good bouquet of smoky black fruits, cassis, toasted spice, and jam-covered toast, it’s medium to full-bodied, balanced, and has a terrific mouthfeel and finish. - Jeb Dunnuck

    Deep purple-black colored, the 2018 La Fleur de Gay delivers bold notions of baked plums, mulberries and blackberry preserves with touches of tar, bay leaves and truffles. Full-bodied and rich, with a plush texture, it has soft acid and a spicy finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
