2016 Clos de Boüard

85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

“Wine Advocate” (March, 2019) – 90 Points

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

“The 2016 Clos de Bouärd is blended of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with bold scents of wild blueberries, red currant jelly and plum preserves plus touches of truffles, mossy bark and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied with great freshness on the palate, it has a taut, muscular core of red and black berry flavors and a chewy frame, finishing with a spicy kick.”
