2000 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol

SKU #1005890 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A saturated purple color is followed by a gorgeous perfume of ink, plum, cassis, licorice, smoke, and espresso. Dense, full-bodied, and opulent, offering a hedonistic as well as intellectual turn-on, it should drink well for 10-15 years. (RP)  (4/2003)

90 points James Suckling

 Nice aromas of chocolate, spices, cedar, and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied and juicy, with nice fruit and a soft finish.  (10/2012)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Impressive aromas of raw meat and fresh fruit, with hints of smoke. Full-bodied and very velvety, with a long, caressing finish and ripe fruit. Super. Serious wine for the money. (JS)  (3/2003)

K&L Notes

Super wine from the owners of Angelus. 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cab Franc. Tons of ripe, smoky, black fruit flavors and rounded tannins at the end. Big, but balanced.

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
