Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, April 2006,
    Score: 88-90

    La Fleur de Bouard was purchased by Hubert de Bouard of Ch Angélus in 1998 because of its exceptional terroir. With consulting oenologist Michel Rolland, their goal is to create the most expressive wine possible. And their 2005 is certainly that. It is extraordinarily rich and dense with flavours of wild damsons and liquorice. Drink 2010 - 2018.

    Score: 89

    The 2005 La Fleur de Bouard (85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue, relatively high tannins, medium to full body, and beautiful richness as well as density. The ultimate reference point for what can be achieved in Lalande de Pomerol, this property, owned by Hubert de Bouard, continues to turn out fabulous wines.

    From the personal estate of one of Bordeauxs most influential tastemakers, Hubert de Bouard, the 2005 La Fleur de Bouard is potentially one of the finest yet produced ... and thats saying something given the consistent quality. A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, its blue/black/purple color is accompanied by beautiful aromas of charcoal, melted licorice, espresso, blackberries, and blue fruits. Deep, opulent, and full-bodied, with sweet tannin as well as a powerful finish, it will require consumption during its first 7-8 years of life. The luxury cuvee (100% Merlot), which comes from a five acre parcel cropped at 20 hectoliters per hectare, is bottled unfined and unfiltered after 33 months in 100% new oak. Drink: 2006 - 2014.

    Score: 16.5

    Intense sweet ripe damsons with edge of liquorice. Dense and moreish, with fine firm tannins - just a little bit thick on the palate at the moment, but freshness comes through the toasty finish. Drink 2010-20

  • WS

    Wine Spectator, April 2006,
    Score: 89-91

    Aromas of blackberry and dark chocolate follow through to medium- to full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long finish. Very well done.

Region

Lalande de Pomerol

Lalande de Pomerol is situated to the north-west of the Dordogne River north of Pomerol. Similar to the great Pomerol appellation the wines are Merlot dominated but sold at a fraction of the price. Some great value wines can be found to the south of the Lalande de Pomerol region as only the Barbanne River separates the two appellations.
