Château La Fleur de Boüard comes from the profound belief of its owner, Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, in the rich potential of Lalande-de-Pomerol terroirs. Supported by his children, Coralie and Matthieu, he applies his technical and oenological know-how in a new, environmentally friendly approach to wine growing. With precision and sustainable purpose, the de Boüard family makes wines with outstanding elegance that compare with the greatest Bordeaux appellations. Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, Coralie and Matthieu set out to reveal the full value of this terroir. Born in Saint-Emilion, where they grew up in the family vines at Château Angélus, they were convinced that Lalande-de-Pomerol’s vineyards have all the qualities necessary to make great wines. The land is fertile and close to tributaries of the Isle and Dordogne Rivers, and also enjoys sunny weathert hat is both warm and humid, providing ideal circumstances for vine cultivation. These mild conditions prompt early flowering of the vine. This local distinction explains the frequent referral to “La Fleur” (flower) in estate names in this appellation area.
The de Boüard family enable these early flowers to develop into sparkling fresh, fleshy grapes. It adopts a strict approach inspired by long wine growing traditionsand relying on oenological and scientific knowledge to carefully ensure that the vines here flourish.
