(JS93-94 points) Vibrant fruit here with plum, berry and blackberry character. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Lovely subtle fruit and structure here. New wine from Boüard family.

(WA91-93 points) The 2016 Clos de Bouärd is the Montagne Saint-Emilion property owned by Coralie de Boüard and her husband, Loïc Maillet, Coralie already with winemaking experience under her belt having run La Fleur de Boüard in Lalande-de-Pomerol. It was previously known as "Tour Musset" and owned by Castel. It has a pretty bouquet with tightly wound minerally scents with touches of licorice filtering through with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, crisp acidity, quite linear and taut in style with pencil lead and tobacco notes lending complexity towards the classically styled finish. I appreciate both the freshness and the cerebral nature of this 2016, one that will age with style. - Neal Martin

The first vintage for the young Coralie de Bouard, owner of Clos de Bouard and La Fleur de Bouard in Lalande de Pomerol, the wine is deep in color with purple accents. The nose offers suggestions of flowers, black raspberries, plum and licorice. On the palate, the soft, silky textured, lush styled wine offers sweet, ripe berries with freshness and the perfect hint of dark chocolate in the endnote. The wine was produced from a blend of 85% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a great first effort.

Checking in as a blend of 85% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, made by the team at Angélus, the 2016 Château Clos de Boüard has a beautiful elegance and purity as well as impressive notes of black cherries, cassis, subtle oak, and dried flowers. It’s very floral, with fine tannins and a silky, elegant finish.

Dark red cherry, raspberry, mocha, licorice and rose petal all flesh out in this succulent, potent Montagne Saint-Émilion. This is an impressive debut. Even so, it will be interesting to see if this wine can be more nuanced in future vintages. Tasted two times. -- Antonio Galloni
