The richesse of an exceptional Lalande de Pomerol

A magnificent wine from Chateau La Fleur de Boüard and product of a « haute couture » vintage, Le Plus de La Fleur de Bouard is made from a selection of old Merlot vines.

Produced in the Lalande de Pomerol appellation, Le Plus de Bouard de La Fleur de Bouard was the result of the ambition shared between Hubert de Bouard de Laforest and his children, Coralie, Stephanie, Mathieu and Quentin: that of producing an exceptional vintage at Chateau La Fleur de Bouard.

The wine is vinified in a suspended vat with inverted truncated cuves, unique in the world. The fruit is received by gravity after the grapes have been moved to a cold room, once they have undergone selection by optical sorting.

When tasted, this wine shows off a beautiful violet purple color. An intensely fruity nose reveals delicious notes of ripe black fruit, cassis and red fruit, gently enhanced by beautiful floral fragrances. The dense and fruity palate reveals a full texture, and a generous, meaty structure with a very fine, tight tannic frame. The palate is savory, offering flavors of fruit (black cherry), along with licorice and nice coffee notes. A powerful, gourmet and fruity wine, Le Plus de La Fleur de Boüard 2018 shows promise for a very beautiful evolution over the years to come.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Made of 100% Merlot, the deep purple-black colored 2018 Le Plus is quite closed and broody to begin, opening to give notions of baked plums, warm black cherries and kirsch plus touches of Chinese five spice, bay leaves and fragrant earth. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely packed with ripe, rich black fruits with loads of earth and herbal accents to brighten it up, framed by rounded tannins, finishing long and spicy.
