Tasting Note:

Hubert de Bouard's property in Lalande de Pomerol usually represents excellent value for money, and 2016 is no exception. Like Hubert's flagship estate, Chateau Angelus, the 2016 Fleur de Bouard has a little more precision and elegance than normal. Produced from 85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, there are notes of flowers, herbs, cassis and hedgerow fruit. It is lithe with good purity of fruit and an impressive mineral quality. There is admirable concentration, with good energy, some salty notes and a well-managed tannic structure.
