Description

Made by the brother of Hubert de Boüard, Christian de Boüard, this property has produced a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc from just under 13 acres of vines planted 1946-1985. This is a hedonistic, juicy, voluptuous style of wine with a dark ruby, plum/purple color, easygoing tannin, and a nice plump, round mouthfeel with plenty of pleasure. This is the kind of St.-Emilion that consumers love. Moreover, it’s not expensive. Drink it over the next decade. A sleeper of the vintage. - WA88
