James Suckling   91-92

A tight and focused red with dark-berry, light wet-earth and dark-chocolate character. Medium body, firm tannins and a clean finish.

Wine Advocate   88-90

The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 La Fleur de Gay opens with earthy notions of underbrush, dusty soil and mossy bark over a core of red currant jelly and black cherries. Medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy, it has a little dip in the mid-palate but recovers slightly on the finish with some lovely fragrant earth nuances.

Vinous   90-92

The 2017 La Fleur de Gay offers much more concentration than its sibling La Croix de Gay, the vines located central on the gravel plateau bestowing higher quality fruit: crushed strawberry and cranberry, a touch of truffle and smoke. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, a fine bead of acidity and a fresh finish with good tension and length. This is a very fine La Fleur de Gay that should age well in bottle.
