Description

You are bidding on one bottle of 2005 Jean de Gue Lalande de Pomerol. This vineyard, is the latest acquisition of the AUBERT Family who gives an emblematic wine of this prestigious appellation in which it is produced.

The 25 acres vineyard lies on gravely soil and is composed of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon with an average of 35 year-old vines.
Vineyard management plot by plot, severe pruning, leaf thinning, bunch thinning, hand picking into small crates and carefully sorted prior to crushing. The wine is aged 18-20 months in French oak barrels.

In 2005 Chateau Fleur de Jean Gue only had a 13-hectare property that belonged to the Vedrenne family. The vineyard was acquired by Rene Vedrenne, grandfather of the director at that time and winemaker, Xavier Magen. The winery is located next to the 12th century church in the heart of the Lalande de Pomerol, located just north of the limit of the Pomerol appellation.

In 2005 Magen harvested 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 used to pump the juice over of the cap of the grapes skins once per day while also circulating the juice in tank (déléstage 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 the tanks two months before bottling.

This 2005 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.
