    Winemaker's Notes:

    A color of Indian ink with dark crimson tinges. Complex, it exudes aromas of black and red fruits (wild strawberries, cherries) mingled with a hint of sweet spice (vanilla) and mocha. The first taste is supple with good structure revealing its powerfulness; it is tremendously velvety-smooth. The tannins are clearly perceptible and pleasantly integrated. The flavors are delightfully long. It's undoubtedly the finest vintage of La Fleur de Boüard so far.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Over-achievers in short, the 2009 La Fleur de Bouard is fabulous, with notes of blueberry, plum, licorice, white flowers and camphor followed by a full-bodied, well-endowed, textured, supple wine. Stunningly concentrated, yet silky and seductive, it should be drunk over the next 10+ years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Aromas of crushed blueberries and minerals, with hints of forest floor. Full body, with chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Tannins are polished though. Stylish wine from this vintage. Try it in 2015.

    James Suckling

    Coffee, cola and toast notes frame blackberry and forest floor flavors in this dense red. Muscular tannins support a firm structure, but ease into the spicy, floral finish. Concentrated and polished. Best from 2014 through 2020. 7,915 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    Bright medium ruby-red. Brooding aromas of blackberry, blueberry, licorice and iron. Densely packed and plush, with noteworthy depth to its flavors of dark fruits, smoky minerality and iron. Not the last word in lift or personality but chewy, rich and chocolatey-ripe, and long on the aftertaste. This wine, and especially the special Le Plus de la Fleur bottling, are remarkable outperformers from Lalande de Pomerol. Owner Hubert de Bouard de Laforest, who also owns Chateau L'Angelus in Saint-Emilion, notes that the deep gravelly soil here is essentially an extension of the Pomerol plateau.
