Château La Fleur de Boüard

Lalande de Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Mushroom and roots of river scrub poking out from muddy banks while skewering the corner-baked brownie with a thin, nearly burnt, crispy collar. A papyrus envelope lies open, filled with sandalwood soaked clay, and a blackberry, blueberry, gooseberry reduction with cassis just to tease. Lean mouthfeel that turns sharply mid-palate to a gravelly mineshaft of nutmeg, black sesame, burnt brownie bits, and soft cranberry jellies wraps up herbaceously with cedar chips, Provençal herbs, hazelnut, Brazil nut skin, hot saw blades salivating old cherrywood and belching pipe tobacco. Kept me nose deep in the funk. Brilliant wine with a surly personality. #LaFleurdeBoüard #Pomerol #rightbank #frenchred #lalande #lalandelicious #rivermonster — 2 years ago

Mag was pristine. 10 years since I had this (last time on the beach on our honeymoon). So powerful, assertively pencilly, intense cedar. Very classic, many years of life ahead. #maglife #lalande — 4 years ago

Ripe but well balanced, drinking more elegantly than the last time I had this 2 years ago. #lalande #bordeaux #NYWE13 — 6 years ago
