2016 Plus de la Fleur de Bouard (6xbt)
The 2016 Le Plus from La Fleur de Boüard has an opulent, almost decadent bouquet that delivers a payload of ripe black cherry, cassis and boysenberry jam aromas, hedonistic rather than heady. The palate is full-bodied with very ripe black fruit laced with dark chocolate and plenty of cassis; this is a large and rounded, sumptuous Lalande-de-Pomerol that exchanges the finesse of the vintage with sheer concentration. It has swagger for sure, although it does not have the precision of some of de Boüard's other 2016s.
Score: 90-92 Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com (230)
