Even more impressive, the 100% Merlot 2015 La Fleur De Bouard Le Plus is a vineyard/parcel selection from clay and limestone soils that was brought up all in new oak. This sensational, full-bodied, viscous 2015 boasts a deep purple color, awesome notes of cassis and black currant fruits, lots of truffle, smoke herbs and meatiness, sweet tannin, and most of its oak covered by a wealth of fruit. It’s a gorgeous wine and I suspect one of the best efforts out there from this appellation. Drink it anytime over the coming two decades.
Incredible depth of fruit with blackberry and blueberry character as well as walnut shell and chocolate. Full body, balanced. Very long finish. Best ever? 100% Merlot.
The wine is 100% Merlot from old vines. It is tight, tannic and concentrated with the potential for richness that is still to show. Powered by its structure, this micro-cuvée needs a long time for aging. (RV)
The 2015 La Fleur de Bouard Le Plus has an intense, corpulent, ravishing bouquet with sexy blueberry, blackberry and cassis aromas shrouded by just a touch of alcohol. The palate is full-bodied with dense, but polished tannin. This is a harmonious Lalande-de-Pomerol, sleek and smooth with layers of sweet black fruit, but it just misses the precision and refinement that others possess. Still, it feels long in the mouth - one for those seeking hedonistic pleasure. (NM)
The 2015 Le Plus de la Fleur de Bouärd offers notable density and plenty of impact. Black cherry, smoke, mocha, plum, licorice, torrefaction and bittersweet chocolate are some of the signatures. There is plenty of richness in the glass, but the ripe, heavily extracted style also comes with a loss of freshness. Readers should expect a big wine. (AG)
100% Merlot. The nose is reserved but hiding a big depth of fruit and the palate is unctuous and spicy with caressing tannins. Rich constitution but a gentler hand than some years. Tannins present but finely honed. Great expression of Merlot.
