85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc
The last born in the family, Le Lion de La Fleur de Boüard is made from the estate’s young vines. It has been Château La Fleur de Boüard’s second wine since 2011. It is gently fermented in the same way as the main wine in inverted truncated cone-shaped tanks before being vinified using gravity alone.
Le Lion de La Fleur de Boüard is smooth and big, and expresses intense fruit highlighted by careful ageing for 12 months, with 15% of the wine residing in new oak barrels, which imparts elegant woody notes. It is a marvellous match with braised beef, calf’s head in vinaigrette or glazed pork ribs.
Notes: 2ème vin de Château La Fleur de Boüard
