An exceptional geographical situation for a top quality vineyard, located in the heart of the Right Bank close to the borders of the famous Plateau of Pomerol and not far from Saint Emilion. The La Fleur de Boüard vineyard combines the magic of land, vines and sky.This 25 hectare estate [ originally called 'Chateau la fleur St Georges', a name now used for the second wine ] was bought by Hubert de Bouard de Laforest and his wife Corrine in 1998.He is also part-owner of Chateau Angelus in Saint Emilion [which he upgraded to Premier Grand Cru Classe in 1996] and has interests in other Bordeauix properties. He is a man of great viticultural tradition, whose family have carefully fine-tuned their viticultural thinking and savoir-faire with innovation and commitment over seven generations, an exciting new future now awaits this vineyard.

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.

The luxury cuvee, the 2011 La Plus de la Fleur de Bouard (100% Merlot from a 5-acre parcel of 40-year-old vines), exhibits over-the-top concentration (yields were an amazingly low 20 hectoliters per hectare). An opaque blue/purple color is followed b... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 La Fleur de Bouard 1500ml

The 2011 La Fleur de Bouard, a blend of 85% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and a tiny bit of Cabernet Sauvignon, averaged 13.7% natural alcohol. A powerful, rich, dense ruby/purple-colored effort, it offers blueberry, chocolate and espresso notes... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

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. Hugely concentrated, chocolate-dipped cherry and blue fruit emerge on the luscious and mouth coating palate. Charcoal, licorice and leather are layered wit... Neil Mechanic.
