Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 95
"A 100% Merlot cuvee from the plateau of Pomerol, the 2009 La Fleur de Gay exhibits striking floral, blueberry, black raspberry, graphite, and subtle oak, charcoal, and camphor notes. This fleshy, full-bodied wine possesses outstanding purity, exceptional body, and admirable opulence as well as richness. It is the best effort from La Fleur de Gay since the 2000, 1990, and 1989.It should drink well for 25-30+ years. (Tasted once.)"
