La Fleur de Bouard - Lalande-de-Pomerol 2020


Château La Fleur de Boüard is an estate nestled in the heart of the Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation, close to the emblematic Château Pétrus. The estate offers an immersive experience to share the spirit of the place and bring out the winemaker’s soul.

Château La Fleur de Boüard was born when Hubert de Boüard, co-owner of the famous Château Angélus, fell for this terroir located on the hillside facing the finest Pomerol growths.

Driven by the deep conviction that the terroirs of Lalande-de-Pomerol could produce exceptional wines worthy of the greatest Bordeaux appellations, he acquired the 25-hectare vineyard in 1998, now extended to 29 hectares. By adopting a precise and virtuous approach, the Fleur de Boüard team crafts wines of exceptional finesse.

Château La Fleur de Boüard has been the estate’s first wine since 1998. Due to the innovative know-how of Hubert de Boüard, supported by his Technical Director Bryan Dessaint and the cellar master, Kinga Hars from Angelus., Château La Fleur de Boüard has fully blossomed and is now the pillar of the Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation. The wine is aged for 15 to 18 months in barrel (50% new) to preserve the fruit and produce silky, elegant tannins.

"The 2020 Château La Fleur De Boüard showed beautifully, with the more elegant, finesse-driven style that this estate has been moving toward front and center. Ripe black cherries, mulberries, toasted spice, and beautifully integrated oak all emerge from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, balanced, and elegant on the palate, it has fine tannins, a terrific sense of freshness and purity, and outstanding length. It will benefit from 3–4 years of bottle age (it’s far from unapproachable even today) and will drink fabulously well over the following decade." - 93 points, Jeb Dunnuck

"Bright and fleshy red with notes of ripe dark berries, sweet spices, citrus peel, moist earth, toast and blue flowers. Medium- to full-bodied with attractive crunchiness and succulence, firm, juicy tannins and a deep dark-fruited character. Structured and long. Better from 2025." - 93 points, James Suckling
