2015 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol

SKU #1350167 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)


 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)

What an incredible Bordeaux at this price. Tons of roasted coffee grinds and chocolate on the nose to let you know you've got something special. The wine is a touch softer on the palate, revealing more typical dark fruits like plum. Although still young, the wine is incredibly drinkable. If you have the patience (or space), it will turn into something even more special.

Owned by the same owners as Angélus, Bellevue and other great properties in the Right Bank, the Boüard family. Thoroughly modernized in 2011, this château has been producing wines of an excellent quality, and in vintages like 2015, it sure excelled. It is drinking very well now after a good decanting, but a good 5 years in the cellar, it would certainly evolve into a beauty.

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.
