Château Lafleur de Gay is the special luxury cuvée wine produced by Château La Croix de Gay. Proprietor Dr. Alain Raynaud first launched the cuvée in 1982 and the fruit is taken from two plots of old vines located on the Pomerol plateau between Pétrus and Lafleur.
Lafleur de Gay is produced from 100% Merlot, which is unusual even in Pomerol. The grapes are hand- harvested and are then fermented in temperature-controlled, concrete vats. The wine is then aged in 100% new oak barriques for 18 months.
Lafleur de Gay is a powerful, meaty and full-bodied Pomerol that is also exceptionally well-balanced and harmonious. A little over 1,000 cases a year are produced.
