James Suckling

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 de Boüard family.

Rather savoury and meaty. Rich and sweet. Like essence of St-Émilion! Pretty impressive...Drink 2021-2028

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 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. Drink date 2021-2040.
