"Among the different renowned family in St Emilion, one name eventually rings more bells than the other: “de Boüard”." Hubert de Boüard has raised Chateau Angelus up to the firmament of the Right Bank wines. With a slew of 97-100 pt ratings from Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, James Suckling and Vinous, it has become one of the most iconic Bordeaux wines.
But this isn’t about Hubert, this is about his daughter, Coralie. Coralie de Boüardis literally born into wine. Along with her sister and brother, Coralie grew up in Saint-Émilion at Château Angelus. From an early age, she followed her father in the cellar and the vineyards and started to walk into his footsteps developing a great interest for the vinification process, rapidly evolving into a passion for wine and winemaking.
Coralie's Estate, Château Clos de Bouard is located in the hilly landscape of the "Montagne-Saint-Emilion" appellation, on the commune of Parsac. Château Clos de Boüard possesses 30 hectares of vines fragmented in several parcels, planted on gentle slopes with good exposure of clay and limestone soils, historically reputed as an exceptional terroir producing refined wines" ❣️
