2014 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1201260 92-93 points James Suckling

 This shows a wonderful density and length with brightness and fruitiness. Full body, lively and refined. Serious effort for vintage.  (3/2015)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The La Fleur de Bouard 2014 has a rich and opulent bouquet, quite lavish, but it needs more delineation to come through. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, tightly knit blackberry fruit with a hint of charcoal toward the linear finish. This is a very 'contained' Lalande-de-Pomerol that should stretch its wings after bottling... (NM)  (4/2015)

88-91 points Vinous

 The 2014 La Fleur de Boüard is exuberant and bold. Sweet red cherries, red currant, flowers, mint and spices are laced together in a silky, racy wine built on pure texture, while the long, persistent finish is quite inviting. This is a classic de Boüard wine built on opulence. The blend is 85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)  (4/2015)

87-90 points Wine Spectator

 *Barrel Tasting* Fresh but lighter-bodied, with modest intensity to the raspberry coulis and damson plum fruit. Pretty spice and suave toast helps fill in the finish. (Web-2015)

Jancis Robinson

 Rich, toasty nose. Very thick and pretty sweet but not over the top. A friendly mouthful – cheerful.  (3/2015)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
