Story

Story

The history of Château La Fleur de Boüard begins in 1998 when Hubert de Boüard de Laforest becomes the owner of this vineyard. With his children Coralie and Matthieu and his technical director Philippe Nunes, Hubert de Boüard de Laforest puts all his know-how, his passion and his technique at the service of an innovative and respectful of the environment process. Children of Saint-Emilion, where they grew up in the family vineyards of Angélus, the family of Boüard is convinced that the vineyards of Lalande-de-Pomerol have all the qualities necessary for the development of great wines. Born from a real family ambition, the wines of Château La Fleur de Boüard are incredibly refined.

Specifications

Specifications

The terroir of Château La Fleur de Boüard is close to the confluence of the Dordogne and Isle, allowing it to enjoy the benefits of a sunny climate, both hot and humid. The name of the domain “La Fleur” comes even from the early hatching of the flower of vine, singularity of the region. The great diversity of the soils of Château La Fleur de Boüard’s vineyard, made up of clays, gravel and sand, gives this terroir a generous nature favorable to the grape variety of the estate which is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The winery, unique in the world and designed by the architect Arnaud Boulain, houses 28 truncated tanks invested, which seem to float in the air. This gravity system allows the smoothest extraction possible. The wine is aged in oak from 19 to 24 months, to 75% in new oak barrels.

16 Jan, 2019 – Fragrant and spicy, ripe and juicy with a ton of crushed berry character. The generous, supple tannins nicely support the full body and long, silky finish. Drink or hold.


Robert Parker Wine Advocate – 92 points

The 2016 La Fleur de Boüard is blended of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and is a little youthfully reticent to begin, giving way to provocative crushed rocks, tilled soil, mossy bark and cigar box scents over a core of blueberry compote, black raspberries and blackberry pie with a waft of dried herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the earth-laced palate is positively charged with energy, framed by very fine-grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note.


Decanter – 90 points

This is delicious, a perfect example of how the vintage balances ripe fruit and great acidity. 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in 75% new oak which just melts right in.
