Description

The freshness and richness of a Bordeaux red wine

The estate

Nestling in the heart of the village of Parsac, Château Clos de Boüard is an estate that has developed an authentic and pure expression of its terroir over the years. Under the aegis of talented winemaker Coralie de Boüard, the wines reveal remarkable freshness and elegance. At the helm of the estate since 2016 with her husband Loïc Maillet, this daring winemaker reveals an avant-garde philosophy, just like her wines.

The vineyard

This 30-hectare vineyard stretches across the Montagne-Saint-Émilion terroir. With its rich clay-limestone soil and old vines that are on average 40 years old, the estate enjoys an exceptional terroir.

The vintage

An early vintage, the 2017 harvest took place over several weeks, with Merlot harvested in September. Despite the impact of frost on some plots, the intense work in the vineyard brought out the best from the terroir.

Winemaking and ageing

A pre-fermentation maceration at between 8 and 10°C preceded alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrels. The wine was then aged for 18 to 24 months in barrels, 50% of which were new.

Grape variety

Merlot (100%)
