2015 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1253127 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2015 La Fleur De Bouard is an awesome wine to seek out. Mostly Merlot, it offers a terrific bouquet of cassis and black cherries intermixed with lots of tobacco leaf and lead pencil notes. It’s medium to full-bodied, has beautiful purity of fruit, and sweet tannin, as well as a texture that just glides over the palate. It should keep for 10-15 years.  (11/2017)

93 points James Suckling

 The chocolate, meat and dark-berry character is impressive to this wine. Full body, round and soft tannins and a flavorful, clove-spiced finish. Just strength with balance. Drink in 2021.  (2/2018)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is a light, fragrant wine. Its tannins are well balanced with bright acidity and lively black currant fruits. The acidity is infectious, crisp and welcome. (RV)  (4/2016)

90 points Decanter

 Rich and meaty aroma. Smooth, ripe constitution with a big depth of fruit on the palate. Tannins are firm but polished. Will represent good value.  (4/2016)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 La Fleur de Bouard has a perfumed nose of violets and roses with a core of baked cherries, warm black raspberries, plums and spice box. The medium to full-bodied palate is soft and packed with fruit, finishing with an herbal lift. (LPB) 90+  (2/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Fleshy in feel, with plum sauce and steeped cherry notes gliding along, inlaid with singed cedar and sandalwood details. Light tea and mineral accents show on the finish. Drink now through 2022. (JM)  (3/2018)

Vinous

 The 2015 La Fleur de Boüard is much more complete and harmonious as a bottled wine than from barrel. Ripe red cherry, plum, tobacco, licorice and menthol add character to this juicy, flavorful red. All the elements are very nicely balanced. (AG)  (2/2018)

This wine was plush on the palate with bright red juicy fruit, balanced by firm acidity and a richness of structure that carried through to the finish. Completely in balance and a nice price to match with the quality. I can see wines like this being what we remember about 2015. "All those value-priced Right Bank wines...."

Black Cherry and asian spices on the nose and palate. Black licorice flavors are intertwined with toasty oak nuances. Very good weight on the palate. A suberb value!
Drink from 2021 to 2031

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
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.
Sub-Region:

Bordeaux

Specific Appellation:

Pomerol
