Over-achievers in short the 2009 La Fleur de Bouard is fabulous with notes of blueberry plum licorice white flowers and camphor followed by a full-bodied well-endowed textured supple wine. Stunningly concentrated yet silky and seductive it should be drunk over the next 10+ years.

Coffee cola and toast notes frame blackberry and forest floor flavors in this dense red. Muscular tannins support a firm structure but ease into the spicy floral finish. Concentrated and polished. Best from 2014 through... Coffee cola and toast notes frame blackberry and forest floor flavors in this dense red. Muscular tannins support a firm structure but ease into the spicy floral finish.

Densely packed and plush with noteworthy depth to its flavors of dark fruits smoky minerality and iron. Not the last word in lift or personality but chewy rich and chocolatey-ripe and long on the aftertaste. This wine and especially the special Le Plus de la Fleur bottling are remarkable outperformers from Lalande de Pomerol. Owner Hubert de Bouard de Laforest who also owns Chateau L'Angelus in Saint-Emilion notes that the deep gravelly soil here is essentially an extension of the Pomerol plateau.
