    A smooth and round red wine from Lalande de Pomerol

    Situated on the right bank of Bordeaux, Chateau La Fleur de Bouard is located in the heart of the Lalande de Pomerol appellation. Fleur de Bouard is the estate's first wine. Under the leadership of Hubert de Bouard de Laforest and his children, the wines of Chateau la Fleur de Bouard have become renowned for their exceptional finesse, revealing a pure expression of terroir each year.

    The 2017 vintage, although low in quantity, stands out thanks to its superb quality. The La Fleur de Bouard 2017 is a Lalande de Pomerol red wine with great purity. The pre-fermentation maceration has preserved the delicate character of this supple and well-rounded wine. The estate grows 3 different grape varieties: Merlot (80%), Cabernet Franc (15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). A 100% Merlot, the Chateau la Fleur de Bouard 2017 is aged without filtration in oak barrels (of which roughly 75 to 80% are new oak) for a period of 18 to 24 months.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 La Fleur de Boüard has a provocative nose of kirsch, black raspberries and warm plums with touches of Ceylon tea, garrigue, lavender and Provence herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with perfumed red and black berry layers, framed by rounded tannins, finishing long and fragrant.
