Clos de Bouard 2019 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
The top wine of this estate, the 2019 Château Clos De Bouard is a Merlot-dominated wine that includes small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Franc. It's made by Coralie de Bouard of Château Angelus, and as you'd expect from this talented team, the wine is brilliant, offering a dense purple color as well as rocking levels of blackcurrants, black cherries, graphite, leather, and crushed rock. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, and nicely concentrated, it has plenty of structure, if not a touch more obvious tannins than the 2018. Nevertheless, it should be approachable in its youth and have 15 years of longevity.
