Tasting Notes from the Curator

Chateau La Fleur de Bouard is a testament to the sophisticated winemaking of Lalande-de-Pomerol. Its bouquet is a rich tapestry of dark black cherries, black plums, and black currant, interwoven with hints of licorice, toasted spices, and spring flowers. The wine’s earthly aromas of wet earth and lead pencil shavings add a distinctive depth, while undertones of chocolate, cocoa, and espresso provide a seamless, sophisticated finish. The flavor profile is equally complex, with a medley of dark, sweet fruits such as black raspberries and plums, complemented by spicy notes of licorice and warm, toasted spices. The taste is rounded out by subtle hints of chocolate-orange, espresso beans, and a whisper of vanilla. The texture is defined by its round, luscious mouthfeel, with well-integrated tannins and a long, elegant finish. This intricate blend of aromas and flavors makes Chateau La Fleur de Bouard a unique expression of its terroir, offering a voluptuous experience that stands out in the world of Bordeaux wines.

Pairings & Suggestions

  • Red Meats: Pair with a grilled ribeye steak or beef bourguignon to enhance the wine’s velvety tannins.
  • Lamb: Herb-crusted rack of lamb or slow-cooked lamb shank harmonize well with the wine’s dark fruit and spice notes.
  • Game: Duck confit or roast duck with cherry sauce beautifully compliment its dark fruit flavors.
  • Cheese: Aged Gouda or ComtĂ© can elevate its mouthfeel, while Roquefort or Gorgonzola provide a contrasting tang.
  • Desserts: Chocolate fondant or plum clafoutis align perfectly with the chocolatey and fruity flavor profile. For the ultimate experience, decant the wine for an hour and serve at 16-18°C (60-65°F) in a large, tulip-shaped Bordeaux glass.
