The 2010 La Fleur du Bouard (80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) is bottled unfined and unfiltered and hit 14.5% natural alcohol. The wine offers up notes of black raspberry and blueberry pie intermixed with incense, lead pencil shavings and plenty of underlying floral notes. Some background oak is also present. The wine is medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, voluptuously textured, rich, long and hedonistic and satisfying. Drink it over the next 10+ years. The other cuvee, a limited production wine, can be absolutely magnificent with some bottle age, as the 2000 is certainly proving to be. ||The standard of excellence for Lalande de Pomerol is Hubert de Bouard’s 50-acre property, over half of it located on the highly prized Neac plateau, which consists of clay, sand and gravel sub-soils.

Layers of ripe blackberry, boysenberry and dark plum on the nose laced with creamy new oak with moderate definition. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, nice freshness here but quite simple towards the finish. Drink 2013-2020. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

Fleshy, with well-focused raspberry and linzer torte fruit laced with ample but integrated toasty apple wood and ganache notes. Picks up steam on the finish, with some latent grip. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Rich purple. Hint of compost on the nose. Then sweetness and some rather awkward chewiness on the palate. Very dry on the end. Stolid but not captivating. jancisrobinson.com

Super freshness and length - a percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and vintage conditions giving extra lift. Cherry and berry fruit aromas and flavour. Hits a perfect pitch. Drink 2016-2022. James Lawther, decanter.com

This deep ruby purple coloured wine from Hubert de Bouard is a delightful wine from Lalande de Pomerol. Flavours are vibrant with notes of plums and cassis supported by lively acidity. All the components are in balance and the wine has good length. A well crafted wine that will age well. asianpalate.com
