Vibrant with juicy cherry-berry flavors, notes of espresso, dark chocolate, smoke and anise. A smooth, sexy texture with suave tannins in a long-polished finish.
Blend: 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

I’ve always loved this cuvée and it’s a terrific value year in, year out. The 2012 Fleur de Boüard is more than noteworthy, it’s a terrific wine to buy a case of for drinking over the coming 15+ years. A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon, it boasts a sexy, voluptuous, medium to full-bodied style as well as loads of black currant and black raspberry fruits, toasted spices, and lead pencil shaving-like nuances. With remarkable purity of fruit, moderate acidity, and sweet tannin, it’s already drinking beautifully (as are most 2012s) and is a hidden gem.

The 2012 Fleur de Boüard (in bottle) offers up copious quantities of dark raspberry, blueberries and spring flowers. It has soft velvety tannins, medium to full body, and a very sexy, lush mouthfeel. This is a gorgeous opaque, ruby/purple Lalande de Pomerol that no one will be able to resist. Drink it over the next decade.

A very polished red with plum, wet earth, blackberry and spice character. Full body, soft, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Drink in 2017.
The 2012 Fleur de Boüard, from Hubert de Boüard property in Lalande de Pomerol, is an attractive, open-knit wine that will please readers with its inviting personality. Sweet dark cherries, smoke, licorice, game and savory herb nuances add complexity, but it is the wine giving nature that makes it impossible to resist.
