Le Fleur de Bouard Laland-de-Pomerol le Plus 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

96 points Robert Parker: Take that quality and add additional layers of concentration, power, extract and wood, and you have the 2009 La Plus de La Fleur de Bouard. Only about 500 cases of this 100% Merlot are made. With notes of blueberry and blackberry liqueur intermixed with graphite and spring flowers, this wine is absolutely massive and not for everybody, but it is an example of what a conscientious and driven producer pushing the envelope can do in a satellite appellation such as Lalande de Pomerol. Moreover, I suspect it will last for at least two decades. (Feb 2012)

The La Fleur de Boüard vineyard combines the magic of land, vines and sky.This 25 hectare estate [ originally called 'Chateau la fleur St Georges', a name now used for the second wine ] was bought by Hubert de Bouard de Laforest and his wife Corrine in 1998.He is also part-owner of Chateau Angelus in Saint Emilion [which he upgraded to Premier Grand Cru Classe in 1996] and has interests in other Bordeauix properties.
