2006 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol

SKU #1044943 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark At present, this estate is the reference point for high quality wines from Lalande de Pomerol. The basic cuvee from proprietor Hubert de Bouard and his wife Corinne, the 2006 La Fleur de Bouard is composed of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Sensationally rich, with abundant quantities of blue and black fruits, spring flowers, graphite, licorice, and hints of espresso roast as well as toasty oak, it is supple enough to be drunk now, or cellared for a decade. Inner quote mark (2/2009)

89-91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Barrel sample. Owned by Hubert de Bouärd of Château Angélus, this is an example of what can be done in the lesser appellations if money is no object. It is smooth, ripe, with new wood but not too much, powered by top quality, densely dry tannins. Inner quote mark (12/2009)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very pretty blackberry, dark chocolate and blueberry aromas follow through to a full body, with wonderfully integrated tannins and a long, refined finish. Fine and polished. Best from 2011 through 2015. Inner quote mark (3/2009)

K&L Notes

This is always a popular wine and this tasting was no different with lots of ripe fruit and toasty oak on the nose, this is a great California convert wine. On the palate more ripe fruit plus chocolate, spice and toasty oak with polished tannins and a long lingering finish. Plus with the pedigree of Hubert de Bouard (Chateau Angelus) it is a great price at $34.99

Run by Hubert Boüard of Château Angelus, this property is a benchmark for quality in this exciting region of Bordeaux. This starts with deep, oaky scents of dark cocoa and toast. The palate is rich, sweet and very creamy with coffee, dark fruit, new oak and a touch of vanilla spice. This well-made, hedonistic wine is hard to resist now, so why wait?
