Tasting Notes and Scores

90-92

Neal Martin

The 2020 Le Plus de la Fleur de Boüard has a voluminous, almost brash bouquet of multilayered black cherries, cassis, crushed violet and light camphor aromas. The ripe, dense palate is powerful and intense, the weight of black and red fruit counterbalanced by acidity that mounts an almost citric attack on the finish. I actually prefer the regular cuvée , which demonstrated more refinement, but this should still age well. - vinous.com

James Suckling

Lots of blackberry and black-olive character with tar and asphalt. It’s full and layered with focused tannins and a long, spicy finish.

Jancis Robinson

100% Merlot. Cask sample.
Purple-black colour. Ripe and gourmand, the fruit present and a little more freshness than La Fleur de Boüard. Touch of toasted oak but well-integrated and fine, compact tannins. (JL)

Antonio Galloni

The 2020 Le Plus de La Fleur de Boüard is the top wine from the Lalande de Pomerol estate. As always, it exudes huge concentration and plenty of dark fruit and oak character. For me, the style is a bit over the top. Let's see how the finished wine turns out.

Jeff Leve

Dark purple in color, here you find loads of dark chocolate covered black fruits, espresso, licorice and spice. Medium/full-bodied, with velvet textured tannins and layers of sweet, supple fruits on the palate and in the back end. Give this 5 years or so in the bottle and it should really start to sing. 93-95

Jeb Dunnuck

The flagship from this estate, the 2020 Château La Fleur De Bouard Le Plus is going to stand up with the top wines of the vintage. Possessing gorgeous notes of caramelized black cherries, violets, cassis, and spicy oak, it hits the palate with a pure, focused, medium to full-bodied texture, ripe tannins, wonderful purity, and a great finish. It’s certainly in the more classically built, elegant style favored by vignerons today but still brings ample fruit, richness, and length.

Tasted by Jane Anson(at Primeur week tastings in Bordeaux, 01 May 2021)

Grilled smoke on the nose, campfire, liquorice and black cherries. Excellent quality, but where last year I preferred the Plus de La Fleur, I think this year I would go for the unforced pleasure of the main estate wine.
