La Quintessence

The fruit of the oldest vines rooted in a terroir of coarse gravel on clay, Le Plus de La Fleur de Boüard expresses all the richness of the estate’s old Merlots, from which it is made exclusively. These very old vines are naturally very low yielding (15 to 20 hl/ha). A long ageing period of 33 months in barrel, including 18 months on fine lees, gives this wine finesse and smoothness. 

Tasting notes

With perfect balance and freshness, this rich, full-bodied wine reveals a large aromatic palette and exceptional elegance.

FORBES (TOM MULLEN) 202095-97/100
« Almost wild–savage–but luscious and approachable. Gorgeous red fruit and billowing acidity in the mouth within a firm tannic structure. A rich and creamy mid palate that includes cassis, fudge, and cherries. »

YVES BECK 201696-98/100
“…Lots of fruit, underlining some of the freshness but also the richness of this wine. Black tea, blackcurrant and redcurrant. Beautiful depth with tannins that reveal themselves slowly on the finish and stand up to a juicy, refreshing structure. A real TGV… Très Grand Vin (Very Great Wine).”
