This could turn out to be the finest La Fleur de Gay since the incredible duo of 1989 and 1990. Made from 35-year-old Merlot vines planted on the plateau of Pomerol, sandwiched between the renowned Lafleur and Le Gay, the dense purple-hued 2008 exhibits aromas of sweet black raspberries, blueberries, graphite, charcoal, and subtle wood. The wine displays a sensational texture, tremendous purity, and a remarkably long finish of nearly 50 seconds. There is no aggressiveness, the tannins are ripe, and the wine鈥檚 acidity provides crispness as well as precision. Revealing exceptional density as well as potential, it should evolve over 20-25 years. Rating: 93-95+ Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (May 2009)
