    Chateau La Fleur de Bouard 2016: a classic Pomerol Lalande

    A red wine from the Lalande de Pomerol appellation, Chateau La Fleur de Bouard comes from a 33-hectare vineyard. The vines have an average age of 25 years, and are planted on clay-sand, gravel and clay-gravel soils. The blend consists of 85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Chateau La Fleur de Bouard 2016 is aged in barrels over a period of 18 to 24 months with 75% to 80% of the wine aged in new barrels.

    The Chateau La Fleur de Bouard 2016 develops generous fruity fragrances (black cherry, blackcurrant) mixed with subtle mineral notes (gunflint). On the palate, this medium-bodied wine has soft, supple tannins before it reveals delicious empyreumatic touches and dark fruit on the finish. This Fleur de Bouard 2016 is best to be consumed by 2032-2037.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2016 La Fleur de Boüard is blended of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and is a little youthfully reticent to begin, giving way to provocative crushed rocks, tilled soil, mossy bark and cigar box scents over a core of blueberry compote, black raspberries and blackberry pie with a waft of dried herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the earth-laced palate is positively charged with energy, framed by very fine-grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note.
