Applying the same principles of cultivation and vinification as in Angelus, Hubert de Boüard brought his Château de Lalande de Pomerol to the top of his appellation. Rich and luxuriously aged wines, of incredible charm, with each vintage praised by critics.
Bettane & Desseauve : 92-93/100
Quarin : 90/100 « Nez intense, fin, au fruité pur et mûr. Bouche moelleuse, savoureuse, tendre au milieu, puis très fruitée qui finit parfumée sur des tannins fins. »
Galloni (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2020 La Fleur de Boüard is racy, plush and super-expressive right out of the gate. Inky red cherry/plum fruit, spice, new leather, licorice and rose petal fill out the layers. Silky tannins and pliant fruit add to the wine’s considerable immediacy and overall appeal, while bright floral accents lift the finish. »
Martin (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2020 La Fleur de Boüard has a gorgeous bouquet of vibrant red cherries, blueberry and violet scents, very well defined and assimilated with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Harmonious and silky-smooth, displaying a touch of white pepper toward the finish. Excellent. »
