Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 94

I have always thought this was the best Fleur de Gay since the 1989 and 1990, and it showed extremely well in the 2000 horizontal tastings. Dense ruby/purple, with notes of melted caramel and mocha, along with raspberry and blueberry, the wine has that endearing combination of elegance and power. Layered and multi-dimensional, with silky, sweet tannins, the wine seems to have hit full maturity, where it should last for another 20 or more years. This is a beautiful wine. [Robert Parker, 01/06/2010]

Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030

JancisRobinson.com – 17.5

Rich, ripe, opulent, brûlée, almost overripe nose, then impressively ripe fruit – black/purple fruit – mulberries. On the palate, surprisingly, not at all hot. Quite a light finish, with a little bit of inkiness and rusty nails. Masses of quite rough tannins. Not a whole. Dry (as opposed to sweet) finish. Still very young. Relatively cool. [16/10/2003]

Anticipated maturity: 2007-2015

Vinous – 91-93

Medium ruby. Sappy, liqueur-like aromas of red berries, coffee, mocha, leather and sexy oak. Silky-sweet and vibrant, with a layered texture and excellent verve for the vintage. A fairly powerful, structured, minerally version of this wine, already showing lovely inner-mouth aromatic complexity. Finishes very long and fresh, with perfectly buffered tannins. Yields were cut dramatically in 2000, and it shows. [Stephen Tanzer, 05/01/2002]
