Süsslich aber elegant. Fast schon trinkfertig! Macht Freude!
Three and a half glasses
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.
Delicious and velvety smooth right bank blend. I found this CHEAP at Sams Club and will get more. Especially delicious with the cheese we had after dinner. Highly recommended if you can find it at a value.

This has concentration and power for the vintage, with cassis and linzer torte notes laced with a racy iron edge. Nice flash of anise on the finish. Has some wood to soak up, but very solid stuffing here.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 La Fleur de Bouard 1500ml

100% merlot. 40-year-old vines yielded only 20 hls/ha. Aged 33 months in new French barriques.
