Winemaker's Notes:

A color of Indian ink with dark crimson tinges. Complex, it exudes aromas of black and red fruits (wild strawberries, cherries) mingled with a hint of sweet spice (vanilla) and mocha. The first taste is supple with good structure revealing its powerfulness; it is tremendously velvety-smooth. The tannins are clearly perceptible and pleasantly integrated. The flavors are delightfully long. It's undoubtedly the finest vintage of La Fleur de Boüard so far.
My Notes:

About Chateau La Fleur de Bouard:

An exceptional geographical situation for a top quality vineyard, located in the heart of the Right Bank close to the borders of the famous Plateau of Pomerol and not far from Saint Emilion. The La Fleur de Boüard vineyard combines the magic of land, vines and sky. Managed by a man of great viticultural tradition, whose family have carefully fine-tuned their viticultural thinking and savoir-faire generations, an exciting new future now awaits this vineyard. Hubert de Boüard de Laforest is the co-owner of Château Angélus, a First Great Classified Growth of Saint Emilion, where he has managed the estate and made the wine for 20 years. He graduated as an oenologist at Bordeaux University. Together with his wife, Corinne, they work passionately towards one single aim: to make an outstanding wine at La Fleur de Boüard.
