Situated near the confluence of the Dordogne and Isle rivers, the fertile soils of Château La Fleur de Boüard enjoy a sunny, warm, and humid climate, creating an ideal environment for vine cultivation. The mild climate facilitates early flowering, a phenomenon that is reflected in the frequent use of the name "La Fleur" within the appellation.

Le Lion de La Fleur de Boüard is crafted from the young vines of the estate. Introduced as the estate's second wine in 2011, its production involves fermentation and gentle extraction through gravity-feed techniques in small, inverted truncated-cone tanks.

"Lots of blueberry and blackberry character with firm, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. It's full-bodied and very polished. Plenty of tar and dark fruit."
-James Suckling, 94-95 Points

"This plush, heady Lalande de Pomerol is succulent and bold right out of the gate."
-Vinous Media

Ageing: 16 months in tank with 15% new French oak
