Chateau Fleur de Jean Gue Lalande de Pomerol 2009
BOTTLE SIZE: 750ml
Chateau Fleur de Jean Gue is a 13-hectare property belonging the Vedrenne family firm. The vineyards were acquired by Rene Vedrenne, grandfather of the present director and winemaker, Xavier Magen. The winery and barrel cellar is at this vineyard, which is next to the 12th century church in the heart of the Lalande de Pomerol appellation, located just north of the limit of Pomerol itself. The vines average 25 years of age and are planted on sandy-clay soil. Magen vinifies in temperature controlled, stainless-steel tanks. Depending on the vintage, he allows the wine to macerate on the skins for three to four weeks to optimise the extraction of color and aromas. Ch. Fleur de Jean Gue is aged in oak caks, of which about one third are new each year, for 12 months before bottling. The wine is packed with sweet cherry and blackberry fruit with hints of vanilla and spice from the stylish use of oak. Its supple fruit and attractive texture make Ch. Fleur de Jean Gue a perfect, Merlot-based wine for current enjoyment with fowl, red meats, grilled fish and cheeses. It also represents exceptional value.

Notes on the Chateau Fleur de Jean Gue Lalande de Pomerol 750ML 2009

Tasting Notes Chateau Fleur de Jean Gue is packed with sweet cherry and blackberry fruit with hints of vanilla and spice from the stylish use of oak. Its supple fruit and attractive texture make Chateau Fleur de Jean Gue a perfect, Merlot-based wine for current enjoyment with fowl, red meats, grilled fish and cheeses. As a Lalande de Pomerol, it also represents exceptional value.

Technical Notes The vines at Chateau Fleur de Jean Gue average 25 years of age and are planted on sandy-clay soil. The soil of the vineyard rows is alternately planted with grass and plowed. Magen harvests and vinifies by vineyard parcel in temperature controlled, stainless-steel tanks that are between 50 and 150 hectoliters in size. The fermentation lasts for one week and is followed by 2.5 weeks of maceration in the tanks. Magen pumps the juice over of the cap of grapes skins one per day while also circulating the juice in tank (delestage in French) to optimize the wine’s color, texture and flavor while avoiding over-extraction. Chateau Fleur de Jean Gue is aged in oak casks which 10% are new, 30% one-year old and 60% two years old, for 12 months. The barrels are assembled in tank two months before bottling.
