In 2016, Coralie de Bouard and her husband Loic Maillet acquired Chateau Clos de Bouard, located in the ‘’satellite’’ appellation Montagne Saint-Emilion.
Chateau Clos de Bouard watches over a 30-hectare. 40 years old on average, the vines planted on south-facing clay-limestone slopes produce fine Montagne Saint-Emilion wines.
Vinification and aging
The grapes are selected by hand using a sorting table and optical sorting. Pre-fermentation maceration at 8-10°C. Alcoholic fermentation. Maceration for 3 to 5 weeks. Malolactic fermentation in barrels. The vinification is carried out entirely in a plot-by-plot manner, followed by manual punching down. The wine is aged for 18 to 24 months in barrels (30% in new barrels and 30% in second fill barrels).
Chateau Clos de Bouard 2021 comprises a blend of Merlot (66%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (9%).
