2015 Le Plus de La Fleur de Boüard, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1255399 95-96 points James Suckling

 Incredible depth of fruit with blackberry and blueberry character as well as walnut shell and chocolate. Full body, balanced. Very long finish. Best ever? 100% Merlot.  (4/2016)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

 Barrel Sample. The wine is 100% Merlot from old vines. It is tight, tannic and concentrated with the potential for richness that is still to show. Powered by its structure, this micro-cuvée needs a long time for aging. (RV)  (4/2016)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 La Fleur de Bouard Le Plus has an intense, corpulent, ravishing bouquet with sexy blueberry, blackberry and cassis aromas shrouded by just a touch of alcohol. The palate is full-bodied with dense, but polished tannin. This is a harmonious Lalande-de-Pomerol, sleek and smooth with layers of sweet black fruit, but it just misses the precision and refinement that others possess. Still, it feels long in the mouth - one for those seeking hedonistic pleasure. (NM)  (4/2016)

89-92 points Vinous

 The 2015 Le Plus de la Fleur de Bouärd offers notable density and plenty of impact. Black cherry, smoke, mocha, plum, licorice, torrefaction and bittersweet chocolate are some of the signatures. There is plenty of richness in the glass, but the ripe, heavily extracted style also comes with a loss of freshness. Readers should expect a big wine. (AG)  (4/2016)

91 points Decanter

 100% Merlot. The nose is reserved but hiding a big depth of fruit and the palate is unctuous and spicy with caressing tannins. Rich constitution but a gentler hand than some years. Tannins present but finely honed. Great expression of Merlot.  (4/2016)

Peppery and spicy and not overly extracted. This is perfectly balanced and lush on the palate.
Drink from 2020 to 2040

Additional Information:



- 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.


- 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.
