Gros is a notorious late harvester and naturalist and his 2011 La Fleur Morange Mathilde (100% Merlot) is bottled early in order to give consumers a joyous fruit-driven hedonistic wine with a whopping 14.5% natural alcohol. A sleeper of the vintage it offers copious notes of blueberry confiture interwoven with kirsch spring flowers and subtle oak. This medium to full-bodied full-throttle delicious silky smooth palate-filling wine can be enjoyed over the next 6-8 years. I have enjoyed these two offerings in just about every vintage I have tasted. Well-known oenologist Claude Gros appears to be building a decent portfolio of clients in Bordeaux even though he is from Narbonne in the Languedoc-Roussillon corridor.

100% merlot from 50-year-old vines on this tiny 1.51 hectare estate to the east of the town of St. Emilion. Soils are sand-clay with limestone and crasse de fer (iron content).

Soils are sand-clay with limestone and crasse de fer (iron content). Deep ruby in color with earth spicy cinnamon and cranberry notes on the nose. Rich supple red fruit on the mid-palate adds to the creamy texture. Accessible pretty and showy as a young wine enjoy this upon release and over the following 10 years.
