Château La Fleur de Boüard's Second Vin, Le Plus de La Fleur de Boüard reveals the aromatic expression of the beautiful Lalande de Pomerol terroir, an appellation located on the right bank of the Bordeaux wine region.
The Château La Fleur de Boüard vineyard covers 29.5 hectares and produces Lalande de Pomerol wines. The Plus de La Fleur de Boüard 2020 is made from a selection of 60-year-old vines which are planted on a gravelly hillside containing 15 to 20% clay.
The vinification and ageing
Pre-fermentation maceration at 8 to 10°C. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration for 4 to 6 weeks. The vinification is carried out in inverted truncated wooden vats and in barrels. Malolactic fermentationis carried out in barrels. Aged for 33 months in French oak barrels (100% new barrels). The wine is neither fined nor filtered.
Château La Fleur de Boüard 2015 is a 100% Merlot.
A beautiful inky colour with blue highlights.
An intense expression, with a concentration of spices (pepper, 4 bays, saffron) evolving into a fleshy and fragrant black fig. When stirred, the wine reveals depth and aromatic amplitude as well as notes of burlat cherry and cedar of Lebanon, conveying a very fresh touch.
The palate has a straight entry and the acidity gives the wine a dynamic sapidity. Remarkable for its freshness and aromatic richness, this Lalande de Pomerol wine seduces with its precision, volume, balance, power and elegance. The finish is fruity and persistent.
