Chateau Clos de Bouard 2016 is Coralie de Bouard’s first vintage (Chateau La Fleur de Bouard) as the new owner, starting in 2016. A total success, for her first try, this vintage grew under incredible weather conditions. Chateau Clos de Bouard is 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Montagne Saint-Emilion has a beautifully deep colour. The nose is intense with red fruits (strawberries and cherries) accompanied by notes of smokiness, sweet spices, and flowers from the Merlot. On the palate, the wine is harmonious, charming, fruity and full bodied. The tannins are elegantly balanced. The finish is long and fresh. Chateau Clos de Bouard 2016 is very agreeable to drink, this wine also shows great potential for ageing.
