2015 Le Plus de La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1255399 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Even more impressive, the 100% Merlot 2015 La Fleur De Bouard Le Plus is a vineyard/parcel selection from clay and limestone soils that was brought up all in new oak. This sensational, full-bodied, viscous 2015 boasts a deep purple color, awesome notes of cassis and black currant fruits, lots of truffle, smoke herbs and meatiness, sweet tannin, and most of its oak covered by a wealth of fruit. It’s a gorgeous wine and I suspect one of the best efforts out there from this appellation. Drink it anytime over the coming two decades.  (11/2017)

95 points James Suckling

 This is a big and dense red with plenty of fruit and powerful tannins. Full body, a solid core of fruit and ripe tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Like a traditionally styled red from a great vintage decades ago, but it's today's rendition. Try in 2022.  (2/2018)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

 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)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Le Plus de la Fleur de Bouard opens with gorgeous crushed black plums, cassis and blackberry pie with touches of baking spices and lavender plus menthol hints. The full-bodied mouth is rich and concentrated with some cedar notes, very spicy, plush and voluptuous with a long finish. (LPB)  (2/2018)

89-92 points Vinous

 A highly promising wine, the 2015 Le Plus de la Fleur de Boüard (Merlot) is just as impressive today as it was two years ago. Rich, sumptuous and juicy, it is wonderfully intense in all of its dimensions. Black cherry, bittersweet chocolate, new leather, licorice and cloves infuse the powerful, voluptuous finish. (AG)  (2/2018)

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)

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.
