Made from 100% Merlot cropped at minuscule yields of 20 hectoliters per hectare, the 2010 La Plus de La Fleur de Bouard was bottled unfined and unfiltered and came in at 14.5% natural alcohol. This wine ratchets up the level of extract, power, density and richness as well as tannin, so it needs 3-4 years of cellaring and can keep, I would assume, for up to two decades, given the performance of the 2000 in recent tastings I have done. This is a beauty, a full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal Lalande de Pomerol that is impossible to believe comes from a less heralded appellation.||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.

La Fleur de Bouard Le Plus is produced from 100% Merlot, from the oldest vines in their vineyards. The vines are situated in a single 4 hectare bock. The small, 250 cases production is aged in 100% new oak for 33 months. Oak, chocolate, black raspberry jam, flowers and spice aromas open to a rich, thick, long, chocolate, black cherry, jammy plum and bittersweet chocolate finish. winecellarinsider.com

The 2010 Le Plus de la Fleur de Bouard, with its aromas of plums, blackberries, cassis and cedar, is a modern, generous full-bodied wine with a gorgeous texture. With its cashmere tannins and mouthcoating softness balanced by vibrant plums and blackberries, this is a rich, very generous wine with power and intensity and a very long finish. asianpalate.com
