Chateau la Tour Blanche

Chateau La Fleur de Bouard wine is produced from a specific a two hectare parcel of old vines that average 45 years of age, situated on the Lalande de Pomerol plateau. The 2 hectare vineyard has a terroir that is similar to Pomerol with its gravel and clay soils. The vineyard is planted to a vine density that ranges from 6,500 vines per hectare in the parcels with the oldest vines up to 8,500 vines per hectare in the more recent plantings. In the vineyards of La Fleur de Bouard Le Plus, yields are kept low. To give you an idea of how low the yields are, for the 2009 vintage, the yields of La Fleur de Bouard Le Plus were only 20 hectolitres per hectare. Along the very expensive method of producing the wine, the fact that only 300 to 400 cases of La Fleur de Bouard Le Plus are produced each year, makes this a unique wine for the Lalande de Pomerol appellation. On a quality level, it competes with and is better than many Pomerol wines. Based on a recent tasting of the 2000, it ages quite well too.
