(JL93-95 points) Two dozen long-stemmed roses and a cup of cocoa, cherry blossoms, espresso, licorice and spice on the nose. Polished tannins, silky, lush, textures, freshness and vibrancy, the finish is all juicy, dark plums and even dark chocolate. Made from 100% Merlot and reaching 14.8% alcohol, the wine is aging in 100% new French oak.

The fragrant, crushed berry and violet character leaps out of the glass at you. But this has serious muscularity, a generous tannin structure with great polish and refinement and a finish that pumps out the flavors... The fragrant, crushed berry and violet character leaps out of the glass at you. But this has serious muscularity, a generous tannin structure with great polish and refinement and a finish that pumps out the flavors. Enormous concentration and length for this appellation. Drink or hold.

Still in barrel, La Fleur possesses tremendous richness and pure power. Dark red cherry, plum, chocolate, torrefaction, spice and menthol all develop in the glass. I am not sure about the extended barrel aging for Le Plus, but time will ultimately be the judge of that. -- Antonio Galloni

(WA90-92 points) The 2016 Le Plus from La Fleur de Boüard has an opulent, almost decadent bouquet that delivers a payload of ripe black cherry, cassis and boysenberry jam aromas, hedonistic rather than heady. The palate is full-bodied with very ripe black fruit laced with dark chocolate and plenty of cassis; this is a large and rounded, sumptuous Lalande-de-Pomerol that exchanges the finesse of the vintage with sheer concentration. It has swagger for sure, although it does not have the precision of some of de Boüard's other 2016s. - Neal Martin
