What the Critics say
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Le Plus de la Fleur de Bouard opens with gorgeous crushed black plums, cassis and blackberry pie with touches of baking spices and lavender plus menthol hints. The full-bodied mouth is rich and concentrated with some cedar notes, very spicy, plush and voluptuous with a long finish. Drink: 2019-2034
The superstar estate of Lalande de Pomerol, La Fleur de Boüard was created in 1998 by Hubert de Boüard, proprietor of Angelus in nearby St-Emillion.
Blended with 85% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, the fruit from each individual plot is vinified separately using gravity alone in small truncated cone-shaped tanks. The wine is then aged in oak for 18 to 24 months in barrels, of which 80% are new.
