Ch. Clos de Bouard (1.5 L)
The 2016 Clos de Bouärd is the Montagne Saint-Emilionproperty 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 filteringthrough 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.
