Château La Fleur de Boüard comes from the profound belief of its owner, Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, in the rich potential of Lalande-de-Pomerol terroirs. Supported by his daughter, Coralie, he applies his technical and oenological know-how in a new, environmentally friendly approach to wine growing. With precision and sustainable purpose, the de Boüard family makes wines with outstanding elegance that compare with the greatest Bordeaux appellations.
Château La Fleur de Boüard represents the brilliant harvest that resulted from the seed planted by the de Boüard family in this vineyard in 1998. Benefitting from the inventive know-how of Hubert and Coralie de Boüard, supported by their technical director Philippe Nunes, Château La Fleur de Boüard has flourished and become the flagship of the Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation.
Blended with 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the fruit from each individual plot is vinified separately using gravity alone in small truncated cone-shaped tanks. The wine is then aged in oak for 18 to 24 months in barrels, of which 75% are new.
Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 La Fleur de Bouard has a perfumed nose of violets and roses with a core of baked cherries, warm black raspberries, plums and spice box. The medium to full-bodied palate is soft and packed with fruit, finishing with an herbal lift. [90+ Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown – February 2018, robertparker.com]
