Château la Fleur de Boüard Red Bordeaux Blend Lalande de Pomerol le Plus 2006
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.
