Chateau Balestard La Tonnelle 2005
Chateau Balestard La Tonnelle 2005
分級：Grand Cru Classe
品種 : 89% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc
評分： Jancis Robinson MW 16.5/20, JancisRobinson.com, December 2007 Mid crimson. Almost animal/gamey ripeness on the nose. Attractive freshness on the front palate. Drink 2013-2018
Chateau Barde Haut 2003 (WS90)
Chateau Barde Haut 2003 Saint- Emilion Grand Cru.
品種：80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
90 points Wine Spectator :
Wonderful aromas of ripe strawberry and raspberry follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a very fruity finish. Yummy.
88 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (214), August 2014:
This attractive, fully mature St. Emilion exhibits notes of Christmas fruitcake, licorice, red and black currants, and spice box. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. Drink 2014-2018
Chateau Belair 1997 波爾多st-Emilion 1B級
Chateau Belair 1997
1er Grand Cru Classé, St Emilion
This estate was owned by the Dubois-Challon family since 1916, and covers 13 hectares of vines planted, predominantly, on well-drained limestone-based soils. The Château is the immediate neighbor of Ausone, situated on the south-facing slope of Saint-Emilion known as the "Côte", overlooking the distant Dordogne river. A traditional winemaking approach is adopted by Pascal Delbeck, new owner and formerly Cellar Manager of Bélair for more than 20 years, working with nature in the vineyard and adopting a minimalist intervention approach in the winery. Since 2005 the Moueix family of Libourne have taken a share in the property and now work hand in hand with Delbeck, with impressive results. Bélair shows signs of finding once more its former glory as one of the finest wines of St Emilion.
Chateau Belgrave 2010 (波爾多5級莊）
Chateau Belgrave 2010
91 Points Wine Spectator: Ripe and fleshy, with lots of roasted vanilla bean and fresh espresso, followed by dark, winey cassis and blackberry fruit. An intense licorice edge and a solid, tarry finish imparts drive. Best from 2014 through 2023.
As Belgrave improves each year, it reveals a character that is close to the elegance and style of Saint-Julien, right next door. Chateau Belgrave is situated in Haut Medoc , just west of Beychevelle in St Julien . It is also next door to Chateau Lagrange , which is also in St. Julien. Just a few meters further and it could have been in St. Julien. This 2010, while dense, is balanced, and its rich blackberry flavor is already integrating into its firm tannins. This should age well for the medium term.
品種：52% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc
Chateau Bourgneuf 2011 JS91/NM90-92
Chateau Bourgneuf 2011
In the heart of the prestigious Pomerol appellation, Château Bourgneuf is spread over 9 hectares in one unique holding. Bourgneuf has belonged to the Vayron family since 1840. Eight generations have succeeded each other, transmitting their love for this land and its history.
91 pts James Suckling, February 19th, 2014:
A wine with a pretty ripe-fruit character and ripe, chewy tannins. Some toasted oak as well. I think it needs another two or three years to soften the tannins and bring it all together. Serious 2011 Pomerol.
90-92 pts Neal Martin – robertparker.com:
The Vayron family have conjured a lovely Pomerol this year… I appreciate its purity and feminity… You know, this could be the best Bourgneufs that I have tasted en primeur. Chapeau! Tasted twice with consistent notes.
Chateau Camensac 2010 (NM90) 波爾多五級莊
Chateau Camensac 2010
產區 : Haut Medoc, Bordeaux
品種 : Cabernet Sauvignon, merlot
90 points Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, March 2014:
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Chateau Camensac 2010 has a tightly wound bouquet with blackberry, wild hedgerow, cedar and cigar box scents that demand coaxing. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, chalky tannins. There are plenty of potent tobacco notes here with a touch of spice on the finish. It is a little introverted at the moment, this should develop nicely with several years in the cellar. Tasted January 2014.
Chateau Cantemerle 2006 波爾多5級莊 JS90
Chateau Cantemerle 2006
90 pts James Suckling:
This is light a tightly wound ball of wool. It’s velvety textured with ripe tannins, plum skin and berry character. Full, long and intense. Just starting to drink well.
Chateau Cantemerle 2009 UJS95/WE92/WA91/WS91 波爾多5級莊
Chateau Cantemerle 2009
Blend: 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc
95 pts James Suckling:
Gorgeous ripe fruit character, with loads of blueberries, blackberries and flowers. Full body, with velvety tannins and a fruity, fresh, grapefruit aftertaste. Really beautiful. Best ever from here. Best after 2018.
92 pts Wine Enthusiast:
Very structured wine, with black currant fruit and dense acidity. The tannins are dark, firm, solid. This is a fine wine from Cantemerle, reveling in the richness of the vintage.
91 pts Wine Advocate:
Readers looking for the more ethereal, elegant side of Bordeaux need search no further than Cantemerle, one of the estates in the very southern end of the Medoc. Dense ruby/purple (nearly opaque), this wine offers up notes of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, raspberries and black cherries. The wine is ethereal, medium-bodied, and by no means a blockbuster, but long and intellectual. However, the tannins are present, and the wine is certainly capable of putting on weight with time in the bottle. Give it 3-4 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 25+ years.
Chateau Cantemerle 2011 波爾多五級莊 (WA91)
Chateau Cantemerle 2011
產區 : Haut Medoc, Bordeaux
品種 : 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
An elegant, successful 2011, Cantemerle has produced a finesse-styled wine with a dense ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of flowers, mulberries, raspberries and blueberries. With dramatic quality and purity, this medium-bodied effort possesses sweet tannins and a texture that builds incrementally. A lighter-styled, but beautifully crafted, well done 2011, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years.
91 James Suckling:
Aromas of currants and berries with hints of chocolate. Full body with a solid core of fruit and a flavorful finish. Very fine. Cantermerle delivers in 2011. Better in 2016.
Chateau Certan Marzelle Pomerol 2006
Chateau Certan Marzelle Pomerol 2006
Château Certan-Marzelle combines, in a unique way, both tradition and modernism. Sharing its denomination with Vieux Château Certan and Château Certan de May, the property was originally part of Château Certan Giraud.
Unlike its mythical neighbors, Château Certan Marzelle is planted with 100% Merlot, and its 20 year-old vines produce wines with great softness and charm. This wine is to be enjoyed in its youth as well as after a few years of aging.
89 points The Wine Advocate:
Another tightly knit wine, despite the fact it is made from 100% Merlot and was showing an opulent, flamboyant character from barrel, this wine now displays excellent density, sweet black cherry fruit intermixed with pain grille, hints of crushed rock, and a distinct earthiness. There is plenty of density, but the wine exhibits relatively high tannins in the finish and seems to be going through an extremely closed state. Give it 3-4 years and drink it over the following 15.
Chateau Clos de Sarpe 2006 GCC 年產少於1000箱(RP94)
Chateau Clos de Sarpe 2006
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
As I have consistently written in the past, this limited production cuvee, from a 12-acre site that contains a parcel of extremely old vines, 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, is meant to last three decades or more. Tasting like a liqueur of rocks interwoven with creme de cassis, espresso roast, toasty oak, and enormous levels of tannin, it is neither out of balance nor astringent. It is a concentrated, backward, impeccably balanced St.-Emilion made with an uncompromising view of the craft of winemaking. It displays superb intensity, a fabulous texture, a foreboding, tannic overlay, incredibly ripe, pure fruit, and perfectly aligned acidity and tannin. Forget if for a decade, and consume it between 2020-2040.
91+ points Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, May 2009:
Bright ruby-red. Superripe aromas of blackberry, blueberry, licorice and crushed rock; like a liqueur of botanical herbs. Then dense, sappy and superconcentrated, with a powerful minerality, solid acidity and a note of black pepper perking up the wine's rather clenched core of fruit. Finishes with a boatload of tannins. This almost painfully intense wine, a great success for this chateau, needs up to a decade of cellaring.
這座葡萄園的構成為：三分之二55 歲到 80 歲以上的古老葡萄樹，以及三分之一樹齡在 10 至 25 歲之間的少壯葡萄樹。整片的泥質灰岩山坡坡度非常明顯，面向正南/東南傲然佇立。土壤豐饒、混有碎石，擁有 50 厘米厚的鐵渣亞層及純度極高的石灰基底。葡萄園內的工作均採用純天然工藝。
Chateau Clos Les Lunelles 2008
Chateau Clos Les Lunelles 2008
產區 : Castilion, Cotes de Bordeaux
品種 : Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon
RP 91 Surprisingly evolved and complex already, this wine is even more powerful than the 2010. Reaching 14.5% natural alcohol, the vines were cropped at an astonishingly low 20 hectoliters per hectare. A final blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, this wine is dense and rich, with a dark purple color, loads of creosote, camphor, black raspberry and blueberry fruit, as well as hints of sweet cherry and toasty oak. Lush, pure, full-bodied and intense, this is a stunning sleeper of the vintage, much like the 2010. It is capable of lasting at least a decade.
Clos Les Lunelles located in the Cotes de Castillon appellation was acquired by Perse family in 2001, who was already well-known in Bordeaux for owning numerous estates including Chateau Pavie and Chateau Monbousquet .
Chateau Croizet Bages 2013 波爾多五級莊
Chateau Croizet Bages 2013
產區： Pauillac, Bordeaux
品種：Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
歌碧莊園(Chateau Croizet Bages)位於法國波爾多Pauillac產區，1855梅多克評級列級酒莊第五級。莊園最初由巴斯(Bages)家族建於十六世紀，成為十七世紀Bage村最重要的莊園之一。十八世紀上半葉，克魯瓦澤(Croizet)兄弟購買下周圍相鄰的大量小塊葡萄樹種植園地，最終建成了Southern Pauillac地區的一座大型莊園。
Chateau D'Aiguilhe 2010 JS93/RP91
Chateau D'Aiguilhe 2008
產區：Cotes de Castillon, Bordeaux
品種：Merlot 80%, Cabernet Franc 20%
平均樹齡：28 years ，土質：Clay-limestone.
91 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (205), March 2013:
From the brilliant proprietor Stephan von Neipperg, the 2010, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that hit 15% natural alcohol, is ripe and intense but exhibits good minerality and freshness as well as lots of blueberry and blackberry fruit, with hints of charcoal, licorice and asphalt. Rich and full-bodied, with no hard edges, this wine should drink beautifully for 10 or more years.
The good news for consumers is that there are over 11,500 cases of this wine, which was produced from the plateau of Saint Philippe d'Aiguilhe, planted on pure limestone and clay.
92/93 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2011:
This is so good already. What an amazing precision of fruit for this wine, with a blackberry and blueberry character as well as minerals. Full and super silky with lovely fruit. Gourmand. Tasty. I want to drink it. Always great value!
Chateau d'Armailhac 2014 波爾多五級莊 (JS94)
Chateau d'Armailhac 2014
94 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2017:
This is very tannic yet polished and firm with currants, bark, and stones. Full-bodied and muscular and linear. Love the length. Beautiful. Try in 2020.
93 points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, February 2017:
The 2014 d'Armailhac is bright, precise and finely sculpted. Expressive red stone fruit, flowers, mint, chalk and citrus abound in this vibrant, beautifully delineated Pauillac. Open-knit and expressive, with good depth and silky tannins, the wine exudes class. The fresh, invigorating style is classic 2014. This is a lovely showing. Tasted two times.
91 points James Molesworth (Wine Spectator), Wine Spectator, February 2017:
Fresh and pure, but not shy on depth, offering an ample core of cassis and blackberry purée flavors. There's a fine chalky minerality throughout, but overall the structure is polished. Anise and spice notes add range. Best from 2018 through 2028.
Chateau d'issas 2012 (RP95) 波爾多三級莊
Chateau d'issas 2012
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2012 Château d’Issan, builds on the richness of the second wine and adds more body, structure and density. It has an inky purple color and a stunning nose of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as touches of incense and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, this 2012 is a great success in the vintage, one of the superstars. Moreover, its precociousness suggests it could be drunk in the next 4-5 years or cellared through 2025. I underrated this wine dramatically in my report of April, 2013 (Issue 206).
92 points James Suckling:
This is an excellent red now with sweet tobacco, truffles and berries. Full body, velvety tannins and a savory finish. This shows the Issan character of decadence and richness.
Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas Valbelle 2009 (WS94)
Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas Valbelle 2009 (WS94)
Blend: 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah
#10 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011
94 Wine Spectator : A gorgeous wine, with an interplay of ripe, dripping blackberry, cassis and plum sauce flavors providing the flesh, offset by smoldering charcoal, tobacco and bittersweet cocoa notes, which provide the angles. The long finish has nice intensity. Best from 2012 through 2022. 1,175 cases made.
Winemaker notes: We didn't release Valbelle in 2008 because the wine had been blended into the Gigondas Classique. This is nice to see Valbelle coming back in 2009 with its very specific style. It generates complexity, depth and balance. 2009 Valbelle combines well the tannic power of the vintage with the roundness and the softness always found in Valbelle. Find notes of strawberry, thyme, white pepper and graphite.
Chateau Destieux 2010 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe
Chateau Destieux 2010

Chateau du Tertre 2003 波爾多五級莊 JS92/RP90
Chateau du Tertre 2003
92 points James Suckling:
This is very new world in the nose with loads of ripe, raisiny, and spicy fruit. Full bodied, with a round and chewy finish. Very extracted, but I think it will come around very well in the end.
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
This dark ruby/purple-colored, luscious, soft, already complex 2003 offers alluring notes of smoked herbs, black cherry jam, camphor, white chocolate, and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, silky-textured, heady, and impossible to resist...
Chateau Ferriere 2011 波爾多三級莊
Chateau Ferriere 2011
品種：60 % cabernet sauvignon, 36 % merlot, 4 % cabernet franc
評級：1855年波爾多列級三級莊 3eme CRU CLASSE EN 1855
陳釀：18 個月橡木桶， 40 % 新桶
The resulting wine has both the power and the elegance. Nice freshness on the nose and palate. The tannins are firms but silky.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINTAGE
Winter and Spring were dry. Since the beginning, climatic conditions predicted an early vintage. The water deficit worsened a little more up to July and the high temperatures in June made the vine suffered. The Merlot sagged after flowering because of these unusual dryness and heat.
2011 experienced unusual weather conditions that ultimately benefited many Cabernet Sauvignons. The grapes had a very good concentration of phenol compounds and very elegant tannins. The challenge of this vintage was a very strict sorting of the grapes. However, there is a lower yield (- 10%) due to the weather, and the berries were rather small with a thick skin.
Chateau Fleur Cardinale 2006 RP91/ST91 波爾多右岸列級
Chateau Fleur Cardinale 2006
91 pts Robert Parker :
"A blend of 75% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, this up-and-coming estate has fashioned an outstanding 2006. While not as prodigious as the 2005, it is an exceptional effort boasting a dense purple hue as well as sweet aromas of blueberries, dark raspberries, licorice, camphor, and pain grille. Full-bodied, powerful, and layered with impressive purity, texture, and length, this unfined and unfiltered wine should be at its finest between 2013-2022."
01 pts Stephen Tanzer:
"Full ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet, licorice and menthol. Intense, pure and sharply delineated, with a juicy, lively quality to the black fruit, violet and menthol flavors. Surprisingly dense and ripe for such a penetrating wine. Finishes with chewy, ripe tannins and lovely aromatic persistence. I'd give this three or four years in the cellar."
Chateau Giscours 1994 波爾多3級莊美人魚
Chateau Giscours 1994
Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse 2002 波爾多五級莊
Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse 2002 五級莊
品種：60％ Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot
88 Points Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) :
This is a mainstream, medium-bodied, pleasantly concentrated, charming, evolved Pauillac. Composty, earthy notes intermixed with cedar wood, black currants and cherries jump from the glass of this fragrant, supple-textured wine.
Château Grand-Puy Ducasse was classified 5th growth in the famous 1855 classification. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are planted on a gravel soil, typical of Pauillac. Thanks to impeccable harvesting and tailor-made winemaking, Château Grand-Puy Ducasse has all the excellent qualities of a legendary fine wine, renowned for aromatic complexity, glorious structure and ageing capacity, all true to the Pauillac’s style.
Chateau Gruaud Larose 1981 波爾多二級莊，36年風華正茂
Chateau Gruaud Larose 1981
63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 3% petit Verdot.
90 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal (Jan 2012)
"It has a light but well defined bouquet with notes of redcurrant, boysenberry, mint leaf and cedar with good intensity and vigour. It reminds more of Las-Cases ’81 in some ways. The palate is medium-bodied with a dry, quite savoury entry, powdery and slightly edgy tannins. The fruit appears to be fading although the secondary flavours and compensating with touches of Chinese 5-spice, orange zest, dried blood and sandalwood. Classic old skool St-Julien towards the finish that has moderate length."
91 points Wine Spectator (Oct 1994) : Polished, big, dark-colored, with rich and opulent aromas and flavors and loads of tobacco, cedary and berry character.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Oct 1989): A top success for the vintage, the 1981 Gruaud-Larose is dark ruby, with a full-intensity bouquet of ripe black currants, spicy oak, plums, leather, smoked meat, and violets. This wine is concentrated on the palate, with rich, tannic, lingering flavors.

Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2004 波爾多五級莊 RP90/JR17+
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2004
90 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (171), June 2007:
Another sleeper of the vintage, this under-priced, beautifully made Pauillac exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with a sweet bouquet of creme de cassis, licorice, tapenade, and spice box. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannin and low acidity, it is a pure, expressive wine to drink over the next 12-15 years.
17+/20 Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, August 2005:
Liquid purple, relatively opulent on the nose. Quite deep and trying very hard. Attractive spiciness and no excess of dryness of tannin. Well managed and well balanced. The only reproach one might make is that it is a little mild and low key - but then so is Lafite. Quite a bit of weight. Very vigorous. Very good! Very fine tannins, there in abundance. It's worth remembering that as far as I know none of the merchants who tear round Bordeaux like me tasting wines en primeur taste blind. My note was made, exactly as it appears above (plus typos), on the basis of a sample of whose identity I was entirely ignorant. Drink 2013-20.
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2005 WS93/RP90/NM90/JR16.5
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2005
93 points Wine Spectator:
Very aromatic, showing blackberry and currant aromas, with some licorice. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a rich, decadent, fruity finish. Caresses the palate. Stylish and opulent. Best after 2011. 10,000 cases made.
90 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015:
The 2005 Haut-Bages Libéral offers loads of blackcurrant fruit, licorice, spice and forest floor. It is medium to full-bodied, with supple tannin and an expansive, textured mouthfeel and finish. Drink it over the next 15-20 years. Drink 2015-2035.
90 points Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, January 2012:
Tasted at BBR’s 2005/2009 tasting in London. The Haut Bages Liberal has a refined bouquet, timid at first but growing in confidence with dark berries, wild hedgerow, truffle and scorched earth. The palate is medium-bodied with a racy entry, crisp blackberry, graphite and bell pepper with a masculine, tannic, chalky-textured finish. It is a little rustic at the moment, but full of character. Tasted July 2011.
16.5 points Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, March 2017:
Tasted blind. Deep crimson. Sleek, well-mannered nose. Lots of graphite quality. Quite distinctive. Fruit and tannins well balanced. Quite long and appetising. Drink 2016-2030
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2009 波爾多五級莊 RP92/JS91-94
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2009
產區 : Pauillac, Bordeaux
分級：波爾多列級5級莊 品種 : 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
92 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (199), March 2012:
Probably the finest Haut-Bages Liberal since the 1982, this beautifully rich wine has an inky purple color, a big, sweet kiss of creme de cassis, incense, some background spicy oak and forest floor. Its gorgeous fruit, full-bodied opulence, impressive purity, expansive texture and broad, savory finish make for a terrific wine to drink over the next 25+ years. Drink: 2012 - 2037
91-94 points James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, April 2010:
Currant and mint, with hints of fresh herbs. Lovely complex nose already. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, racy finish. Solid core of beautiful fruit.
Chateau Kirwan 2006 波爾多3級莊 WE91/WS90
Chateau Kirwan 2006 波爾多3級莊
91 pts Wine Enthusiast:
The new wood flavors on this wine are becoming well integrated with the velvet fruit textures. The tannins are now an adjunct to the fruit, which shows fresh spice and sweetness. It is becoming a fine, balanced wine, delicate and perfumed.
90 pts Wine Spectator:
There's lovely fruit in this wine, with berry, chocolate and plum aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. A very balanced Kirwan. Best from 2011 through 2016. 7,080 cases made.
Chateau La Dominique 2006 (WA90) 波爾多右岸列級
Chateau La Dominique 2006 波爾多右岸列級
A predominantly Merlot blend, complimented with Cabernet Franc and a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged entirely in oak barrels, of which, 50-70% are new for 15-18 months.
90 Points The Wine Advocate:
After several listless performances from this superb terroir near Cheval Blanc and the Pomerol border, La Dominique's 2006 exhibits a dense purple color and a sweet nose of licorice, nori (the seaweed wrapper used in sushi restaurants), raspberry, and kirsch. Full, with a certain flamboyance, ripe tannins, and a layered, long finish, this is a terrific La Dominique to drink over the next 12-14 years.
89 Points International Wine Cellar:
Full ruby-red. Aromas of black plum, molten chocolate, mocha and licorice show a slightly liqueur-like aspect. Creamy-sweet and lush, with a generous texture to the black cherry, violet and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes sweet and smoothly tannic but with good backbone. This is the first vintage to be vinified by Jean-Luc Thunevin.
Chateau La Fleur de Bouard 2012 Lalande de Pomerol (JS91,WA91,AG90)
Chateau La Fleur de Bouard 2012, Lalande de Pomerol
品種： 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
91 points James Suckling (Feb 2015):
A very polished red with plum, wet earth, blackberry and spice character. Full body, soft, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Drink in 2017.
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (April 2015):
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.
90 points Vinous (AG) (Jan 2016):
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.
