Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2016 La Fleur de Bouard sings of warm plums, black cherry compote and wild blueberries with touches of exotic spices and violets plus a waft of underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with bags of black fruit preserves and a plush frame, finishing long and spicy.

Cherry, blood orange and bergamot notes are woven with a light sandalwood hint. Charming, silky finish. Drink now through 2023. 10,000 cases made.

Chewy and dense red with licorice, blackberry and dark-chocolate character. Full body and a tight and firm texture. Shows lovely length, too.

Very dark crimson. Bit of sandpaper on the nose. Very rich and sweet. Almost over the top but there is freshness at the end. This is a strong statement! Drying and rather cool on the end.

Sensuous with a candied, dark cherry core of fruit, this medium/full-bodied wine has a fresh, red berry, dark cocoa, cigar wrapper and thyme filled finish. Produced from a blend of 85% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is 14.5% alcohol.

Lalande de Pomerol

This AOC is located in two municipalities: Lalande-de-Pomerol and Néac. In Lalande, the basements are mainly composed of gravel. In Néac, the vineyard is planted on a higher plateau, composed of gravel and sands. Merlot dominates the blend of these wines very close to those of Pomerol. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec are also used in the composition of wines.
The Lalande-de-Pomerol are characterized by a deep red, a guarantee of powerful and bouquety wines. The tannic presence is revealed on the attack but the warm side quickly reappears on the palate where the tannins become velvety.
