Green apples, mint leaf, lemons, spice, flowers and grapefruit aromatics create the complex perfume. Bright, crisp and fresh on the palate, the wine leaves you with a refreshing blast of creamy, vibrant, yellow citrus with a hint of pear.
In 2012, Mr. Hubert de Boüard de Laforest (Château Angélus) joined forces with Mr. Philippe Nunes, the technical director of his Lalande de Pomerol vineyard, La Fleur de Boüard. With friends, they acquired a 6.6 hectares estate on a clayey and chalky plateau of Saint Sulplice and Cameyrac, as well as on the gravelly clays of Montussan, a perfect terroir for the culture of Merlot. The vines overhang a small river, La Laurence, from which the estate took its name.
Like the great growths from Bordeaux, the cellar benefits from stainless steel temperature-controlled vats and the wines are aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. This joint work is a success awarded by flattering comments from the most famous wine critics.
