(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.

(JS94-95 points) A fine and polished Le Plus with fine, sophisticated and polished tannins. Full-bodied, juicy and bright. Pretty fruit, acidity and tannin harmony. Old vines.

Imposing and dark, with a huge core of fruit, the 2016 shows great promise. Hubert de Boüard plans to give the 2016 34 months in oak, an approach I am not sure works or is even necessary. To be sure, the purity of the flavors at this stage is striking.

(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
