Dark black cherry robe; nose is pretty much closed with some black currant and cassis trying to break through. Oak is also quite noticeable at this stage in the wine's development. Good structure with bright, integrated tannins and the Merlot backbone emerges well on entry. Finish is quite long but somewhat overpowered by new oak. Should age for 6-8 years at least. A very nice expression of the right bank and one of the best for the price I've tasted so far from this vintage.

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. 5,330 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 La Fleur de Bouard 750ml
