Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 Le Boscq offers plenty of blackberry, raspberry and briary scents on the nose, the oak neatly integrated, backward but simply biding its time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite structured but nicely focused with impressive tension on the finish. I would just like a little more on the aftertaste but otherwise, this is a very fine Le Boscq that punches above my expectations from barrel. Tasted September 2017.
"Since 1995 we have been passionately dedicated to renovating this little gem of a property in Saint-Estephe and restoring it to its former glory. Located on a magnificent terroir, right next to the Gironde estuary and overlooked by a majestic residence, with its rich and ancient history, the Château Le Boscq vineyards today produce highly distinctive wines, which elegantly combine the powerful character of Saint-Estephe with extraordinary finesse." Patrick Jestin
Château Le Boscq features among the great classics of the Saint-Estèphe appellation. The first wine, Château le Boscq Cru Bourgeois, is a St-Estephe wine bursting with character, which elegantly combines the power of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, with the Merlot’s finesse, which is unusual for the appellation. Delicate and well-balanced, it has great ageing potential.
