The Fleur de Boüard vineyard on the edge of the Pomerol plateau, not far from Saint Emilion, La Fleur de Boüard's vineyard benefits from an exceptional location. Under the supervision of Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, co-owner of Château Angélus, the property combines tradition, expertise and innovation. Accompanied by his wife Corinne, his ambition is to make Fleur de Boüard into an outstanding vineyard. This terroir in the north of Pomerol consists of gravelly and sandy-gravelly soil, which holds the heat and encourages early ripening of the grapes. The subsoil contains iron residues that give the wines the violet aroma characteristic of some of the finest Pomerols. After harvesting, the grapes are double-sorted, before and after manual destemming. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in truncated cone vats and in barrels. Malolactic fermentation takes place entirely in barrels.
About the cuvée
The Fleur de Boüard cuvée is aged for 18 to 24 months in French oak barrels that are 75% renewed each year. It is a fine Lalande-de-Pomerol which holds it own against its prestigious Pomerol neighbours. It is full and well-structured on the palate, with unctuous tannins.
