2012 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol (1.5L)

SKU #1268741 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, it transcends the vintage boasting a black/purple color along with sweet black raspberry and blueberry fruit notes intermixed with spring flowers, incense, new oak and lavender. Rich and intensely concentrated, this beauty should drink well for a decade or more. (RP)  (4/2013)

91 points James Suckling

 A very polished red with plum, wet earth, blackberry and spice character. Full body, soft, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Drink in 2017.  (2/2015)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Glass-staining inky purple. Strong, sexy oak notes complement cassis, cocoa and coffee on the nose. Sweet, pliant and smooth, boasting good depth to the blackcurrant, tobacco and coffee flavors. The broad finish shows fine, building tannins and mellow lingering notes of oak-derived coffee and cocoa. Offers above-average concentration and depth for the vintage. (ID)  (8/2013)

90 points Vinous

 The 2012 Fleur de Boüard, from Hubert de Boüard property in Lalande de Pomerol, is an attractive, open-knit wine that will please readers with its inviting personality. Sweet dark cherries, smoke, licorice, game and savory herb nuances add complexity, but it is the wine giving nature that makes it impossible to resist. (AG)  (1/2016)

Wine Spectator

 Shows an herbal edge from the start, with roasted savory and rosemary notes and mulled plum and blackberry fruit. A briary edge emerges on the finish. (JM, Web-2013)

A very balanced wine. It has a lush fruit profile full of dark berries, plums, and attractive floral aromatics, along with a gentle herbal note that I found extremely enticing. Its velvety tannins adds even more appeal to this lush but definitely not over the top Lalande-de-Pomerol.

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.
