Le Plus de La Fleur de Bouard 2016 – Lalande-de-Pomerol

The nose is elegant, aromatic and offers finesse. It reveals fine notes of blackberry, violet / flowers combined with a discreet hint of strawberry garriguette as well as slight hints of sweet spices and an imperceptible hint of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a nice unctuosity, suavity, fine minerality, a (very) slight cremosity, a nice matter, roundness, tension, a nice fat and a fresh frames / a beautiful “guideline” (that leads the tasting). On the palate, this wine expresses notes of ripe/fresh blackberry, fine notes of cassis, ripe raspberry and a discreet hint of fresh small red fruits as well as discreet toasted / caramelized oak hints. Beautiful finish on fine notes of dark chocolate / bitterness of chocolate. Tannins are fine and already melted (for their age). Beautiful gourmandise and amazing aromatic persistence! A great wine! Great potential (2022+).
