An exceptional left bank Bordeaux from the spectacular 2005 vintage. This property continually over-achieves and each vintage rivals many of the Classified Growths for quality. Robert Parker said about this 2005. “From the personal estate of one of Bordeaux’s most influential tastemakers, Hubert de Bouard, the 2005 La Fleur de Bouard is potentially one of the finest yet produced ... and that’s saying something given the consistent quality. A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, its blue/black/purple color is accompanied by beautiful aromas of charcoal, melted licorice, espresso, blackberries, and blue fruits. Deep, opulent, and full-bodied, with sweet tannin as well as a powerful finish, it will require consumption during its first 7-8 years of life. The luxury cuvee (100% Merlot), which comes from a five acre parcel cropped at 20 hectoliters per hectare, is bottled unfined and unfiltered after 33 months in 100% new oak.”

The 2005 La Fleur de Boanduuml;ard (85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue, relatively high tannins, medium to full body, and beautiful richness as well as density. The ultimate reference point for what can be achieved in Lalande de Pomerol, this property, owned by Hubert de Boanduuml;ard, continues to turn out fabulous wines.

With its high proportion of Merlot, this is a slinky, rich wine, smooth and ripe. Yes, there are tannins, but the jammy fruit softens the dark corners. It should age, but is not for the long-term.

[Barrel tasting] Aromas of blackberry and dark chocolate follow through to medium- to full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long finish. Very well done.
