All Vintages of this wine

2014 Lalande de Pomerol pure Merlot from Bordeaux. 

The Le Plus de La Fleur de Boüard is an iconic wine and the flagship of the property Chateau La Fleur de Board managed by Coralie de Boüard. From the oldest Merlot plots, planted on gravels, this wine quickly gained in depth and precision since its first release. This Lalande de Pomerol enjoys a special vinification tool (100% by gravity in trucated cone-shaped vats). Distinguished, the 2014 Le plus de La Fleur de Boüard gives off floral (intense violet, blue cedar balsamic notes, spices) and dark fruits fragrances with a good freshness and a kind of nervousness on the nose. The aeration reveals blackcurrant fragrances followed by a balsamic hint. The texture is fleshy. The palate is balanced and offers a frank attack with a good acidity until finish. The tannin is tight with a fine, quality grain. The structure is precise and forms a solid arch. This 2014 Lalande de Pomerol is full-bodied and serious. This pure Merlot was carefully and precisely vinified. It is a success.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Le Plus de Bouard 2014 is strangely less expressive, tighter on the nose than the La Fleur de Bouard at this stage. This is stoic and introverted at the moment. The palate is full-bodied and dense with thick, chewy tannin, sinewy in style, but missing persistence on the finish. I actually prefer the sensuality expressed by the La Fleur de Bouard this year, which demonstrates more precision and energy.
