The 2014 La Fleur de Boüard is still in barrel, but it is shaping up to be a terrific wine. Dark, sumptuous and inviting, with soft contours, the 2014 is an excellent choice for drinking over the near and medium term. Succulent red cherry, plum, rose petal, mint and dried flowers are all pushed forward in this gloriously ripe, voluptuous Lalande-de-Pomerol. Tasted two times. Read more

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate

The La Fleur de Bouard 2014 has a rich and opulent bouquet, quite lavish, but it needs more delineation to come through. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, tightly knit blackberry fruit with a hint of charcoal toward the linear finish. This is a very “contained” Lalande-de-Pomerol that should stretch its wings after bottling, though I always find it difficult to discern much personality in Hubert de Bouard's wine.

The licorice and herbal notes really add something to this wine, which is simultaneously rich and dry; good length, too.

Expert Review
Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider

Notes of black raspberry, licorice and espresso bean create the fragrance. This wine is soft, polished and expressive, leaving you with a dose of black cherry and thyme. Top value for a Bordeaux wine. 88-90 Pts

Jeannie Cho Lee MW - Asian Palate

Balanced and forward with ripe plum and simple cherry fruit. Subtle, layered and supple tannins. This is a suave, balanced wine that is sound but a bit unexciting.

Expert Review
James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

Fresh but lighter-bodied, with modest intensity to the raspberry coulis and damson plum fruit. Pretty spice and suave toast helps fill in the finish.

Jancis Robinson MW

Rich, toasty nose. Very thick and pretty sweet but not over the top. A friendly mouthful – cheerful. Drink 2017-2025 (16+) 16/20

Expert Review
James Lawther MW - Decanter Magazine

Ripe, red berry nose with a hint of chocolate. Palate juicy, round and smooth. Tannins slightly grainy. Firm finish. Drink: 2018-2025 (88) 16/20

Tasting Notes

The 2014 La Fleur de Bouard has a detailed and quite intense bouquet with blackberry, raspberry and cedar aromas, an attractive floral scent that emerges with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, lively and crisp in the mouth, although the finish shuts everything down a little early. Therefore, give this Lalande de Pomerol three or four years in bottle to allow those tannins to mellow and just gain the charm of the aromatics. Neal Martin, Robert Parker 90 Points

Fleur de Boüard, Lalande de Pomerol terroir at its best Château La Fleur de Boüard comes from the profound belief of its owner, Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, in the rich potential of Lalande-de-Pomerol terroirs. Supported by his daughter, Coralie, he applies his technical and oenological know-how in a new, environmentally friendly approach to wine growing.
