Harvested from 20th September, the 1995 La Fleur de Gay has a ripe, inviting bouquet of redcurrant, freshly tilled earth, Moroccan leather and sage. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and good acidity. It is still quite backward and deserves further decanting that afforded here. Good depth of fruit, strict tannins, hints of roasted herbs towards the savoury finish that you might think contained a little Cabernet Franc (it does not.) I would like more persistency. Leave this alone for 7 to 10 years. Tasted June 2011.

The 1995 La Fleur de Gay has begun to shut down following bottling. The color is a healthy dense ruby/purple. The nose displays aromas of minerals, pain grille, a touch of prunes, and gobs of black cherries and cassis intertwined with vanillin from new oak casks. This medium-bodied wine exhibits fennel-like black currant flavors, high tannin, and impressive purity, depth and length.
