2020 Clos de Boüard Dame de Boüard  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 90

Soft, lush, ripe and forward with a focus on its cocoa-infused plums, cherries and licorice. There is a nice polish to the tannins, and ample, sweet fruit in the finish, making this just great to enjoy on release. 89-91 Pts

2020 Clos de Boüard  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 93

Dark in color, the bouquet pops with chocolate covered plums, licorice, smoke, stone and spice. Lusciously textured with layers of ripe, sweet, round, opulent fruits, this is a contender for the best vintage of Clos de Bouard yet. 92-94 Pts

2019 Clos de Boüard  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 93

Rich, lush, opulently textured black, blue and red fruits are what you find on the palate. That is until you work your way over to the medium/full-bodied, sensuous, chocolate, licorice, espresso and fruit-filled, supple textured finish. 92-94 Pts

2018 Clos de Boüard La Dame de Boüard  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 90

Fresh, bright fruits, chocolate and licorice work together perfectly in this forward, open, already easy to drink, medium-bodied, plummy wine. The second wine of Clos de Bouard was produced from 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. 89-91 Pts

2018 Clos de Boüard  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 93

Deep ruby in color, you find the espresso, licorice, black plum and cherry nuances on the nose and palate. Round, lush, soft, silky and fresh, the fruit is ripe, sweet and earthy, with good length, refinement and a hint of espresso and cocoa on the backend. 93 Points

Black plums, licorice, smoke, espresso and chocolate are easily discerned. On the palate, the wine is lush, polished, round and silky. The fruits are ripe, the tannins are polished and the finish mixes dark red fruits with cocoa, licorice, smoke and spice. This is only the second vintage for Coralie de Bouard, who was not able to produce a wine in 2017, due to difficult weather conditions. The wine is a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. 92-94 Pts

2018 Clos de Boüard Dame de Boüard  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 90

Forward, medium-bodied, soft, round, fruity and fresh, the wine is already offering its espresso, licorice, cherry and plum character. You can enjoy this on release while waiting for its big sister to develop. 90 Points

2017 Clos de Boüard  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 91

Gracefully forward, subdued yet seductive, prepare for gradations of chocolate-covered plums, mint and licorice from start to finish. The wine will blossom on your palate and finish with a warm blast of cocoa and plum. Due the frost only 20% of the typical volume was produced. 91 Points

2016 Clos de Boüard  (Montagne-St. Émilion) 92

Black raspberries, licorice, herbs, plum, espresso and mint exude from the glass with little effort. From there, you move to the elegant, sensuous, silky palate with all that gorgeous, ripe, plum, cherry, smoke and herbs. The wine feels great on your palate from start to finish. The debut vintage from Coralie de Bouard is a wine that deserves to be tasted. 92 Points

The first vintage for the young Coralie de Bouard, who also owns La Fleur de Bouard in Lalande de Pomerol. The wine is deep in color with purple accents. The nose offers suggestions of flowers, black raspberries, plum and licorice. On the palate, the soft, silky textured, lush styled wine offers sweet, ripe, berries with freshness and the perfect hint dark chocolate in the end note. The wine was produced from a blend of 85% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a great first effort. 92 Points
