The 2012 Fleur de Boüard (in bottle) offers up copious quantities of dark raspberry, blueberries and spring flowers. It has soft velvety tannins, medium to full body, and a very sexy, lush mouthfeel. This is a gorgeous opaque, ruby/purple Lalande de Pomerol that no one will be able to resist. Drink it over the next decade.

A very polished red with plum, wet earth, blackberry and spice character. Full body, soft, chewy tannins and a juicy finish.
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 Chateau 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.
