The 2011 La Fleur de Bouard is a rich, full-bodied, ripe, heady, satisfying effort. Big, chewy and delicious, it showcases super-ripe Merlot picked late from small yields. ||In a relatively short period of time, Hubert de Bouard has created a reference point for how great Lalande de Pomerol can be. When tasted 10-15 years after the vintage, de Bouards wines consistently prove his conviction that he is sitting on a special terroir, even though this appellation is a humble one compared to his nearby neighbors, Pomerol and St.-Emilion.

The 2011 is a little subdued on the nose although the palate shows good structure and depth. The tannins are rather bold and the oak accentuated on this occasion. The finish is dark and broody, the fruit perhaps squeezed out by the cooler, low pressure conditions. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

This is very powerful with a wonderful length. Full-bodied, with ultra-fine tannins and a bright fruit and acidity. Mineral. Wow. jamessuckling.com

Lighter-bodied, with slightly loose plum and blackberry fruit and a hint of scorched wood on the finish. Knits together with some time in the glass. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com
