In 2016, Coralie de Boüard and her husband Loïc Maillet acquired Chateau Clos de Boüard, located in the ‘’satellite’’ appellation Montagne Saint-Emilion. La Dame de Bouard is the estate’s Second Wine.
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.
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 10 to 14 months in barrels (15% in new barrels and 15% in second fill barrels).
La Dame de Bouard 2021 comprises a blend of Merlot (66%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (9%).
