JS: 92 A delicious, juicy red with plum, chocolate and hazelnut character, as well as walnut. It’s full-bodied with ripe tannins that grow on the palate. Long, flavorful finish.
Among the different renowned families in St Emilion, one name eventually rings more bells than the others: "De Boüard". With Jean-Bernard Grenié, Hubert de Boüard has raised Ch. Angelus up to the firmament of the Right Bank wines, making it one of the most iconic French wine symbols. But as you might have guessed, he has also achieved to share his passion with his family, starting with his 2 daughters Stéphanie & Coralie.
It's safe to say that when you are born and raised in the middle of such an environment, a move towards the wine world is obvious. It was just a question of time. When Stephanie joined her father last year at the head of the 1st GCC “A”, Coralie had already made her move in the vines.
After joining the flagship estate, she followed the step of her father in Lalande de Pomerol, becoming co-owner of Ch. La Fleur de Boüard. With her brother Mathieu, she made this property one of the "must have" estates of this appellation. But the success story of Coralie wouldn't stop here.
The occasion was too good to miss it. When Castel sold Ch. La Tour Musset in Montagne St Emilion, it was the perfect opportunity. So Coralie and her husband took it. "It was a personal wish" she said. And one of the first decisions was renaming it. So, Chateau Clos de Boüard was born.
