2001 Le Plus de la La Fleur de Bouard (750ml)

Merlot from Lalande de Pomerol, Bordeaux, France


The super, limited production, stunningly proportioned 2001 Le Plus de la Fleur de Bouard boasts a saturated purple color in addition to phenomenal concentration. This massively endowed offering is about as powerful and concentrated as a wine from Bordeaux can be. How this wine will age remains to be seen, but this is amazing stuff made from small yields of 20 hectoliters per hectare. It should drink well for at least 12-15 years.

Dark-colored, with powerful dark chocolate and berry character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Slightly more fruit on the midpalate would make this really excellent, but it's still impressive. From Hubert de Boüard of Angélus. Well done. Same level as the 2000. Big and rich for this appellation. Better than many Pomerols. Best after 2007. 4,165 cases made.
