Château la Fleur de Boüard Red Bordeaux Blend Lalande de Pomerol le Plus 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

<br/> The 2009 La Fleur de Bouard (made from yields of 45 hectoliters per hectare; 13.5% alcohol) is a Merlot-based wine with brilliant purity, abundant black cherry, plum, and boysenberry fruit, extraordinary density, decent acids, and high tannins. This full-bodied, concentrated, impressively endowed 2009 should age nicely for 10-15 years. At a recent tasting of the 2000 vintage, I was reminded of how great this estate's luxury cuvee can be. It was off the charts in terms of richness and personality.<br/><br/><br/><br/> Unquestionably a star of Lalande de Pomerol is the 50-acre estate of Hubert and Corinne de Bouard, who produce wines that fly well above their pedigree. Tasting through older vintages proves that these are the "real deal," as they age quite well. One can even argue that the luxury cuvee, La Plus de la Fleur de Bouard, is one of the top twenty wines being produced in Bordeaux - a remarkable achievement given the appellation's lack of status.<br/><br/> (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - April 2010)<br/><br/>

Bright medium ruby-red. Brooding aromas of blackberry, blueberry, licorice and iron. Densely packed and plush, with noteworthy depth to its flavors of dark fruits, smoky minerality and iron. Not the last word in lift or personality but chewy, rich... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 La Fleur de Bouard 750ml
