Description

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. Château Le Boscq harmoniously allies the power of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot with the delicacy of Merlot. The wine is refined and well-balanced, shows great potential, and will improve with ageing.

Grape

46% Cabernet-sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 6% Petit verdot, 2% Cabernet franc

Vineyard & Vinification Note

HVE3 and Terra Vitis certified (High environmental value certificates).

As in every Dourthe vineyard, the team constantly strives to improve viticultural practices to produce the finest grapes. The vineyard is, therefore, managed according to the environmental principles of sustainable plant protection, specifically to manage the quality of the yields. Canopy management and yield control are practised throughout the vineyard, adapted to the climate and profile of each plot, using bud-stripping, leaf stripping, secondary shoot removal, lateral branch removal and, if necessary, removing any inconsistent grapes from veraison onwards (green harvest). The harvest date is determined by regularly tasting the fruit, which is then evenly spread over time and carried out by hand, using small crates, selectively harvesting only the consistently ripe grapes by plot or micro-plot. In traditional vinification, individual wine parcels are vinified separately. Small capacity temperature-controlled stainless steel -tanks. Vertical press to ensure gentle pressing.

Vineyard surface: 18HA

Soils: High and deep gravel hillocks on a clay subsoil.

Harvest: Manual picking using small crates per plot. Optical sorting.

Vinification: Stainless steel vats of various capacities. Malolactic fermentation partially in barrels.

Ageing: 12 months in oak barrels (37% new) on fine lees.

Tasting Note

“Wonderfully deep in colour, tinged with glints of purple. The wine is complex on the nose, combining the intensity of ripe fruits with notes of gentle spice, precious woods and tobacco. Initially soft on the palate, the wine gains in concentration, full-bodied and long, with bold, powerful tannins. A wealth of rich flavours is present throughout, culminating in notes of black berry fruit and spice. Typical Saint-Estèphe.” Frédéric Bonnaffous, Dourthe Estates Director

James Suckling

Intense and focused with cigar tobacco, cedar, spice and berry. Currant too. Medium- to full-bodied. The fruit is there at the beginning and then it takes off at the finish. Give this two or three years to soften and come together. Complex and long. Drink after 2024”. 94 Points, November 2021

 Wine Spectator

“Ripe and juicy, boasting both burly and sleek aspects, with black currant and blackberry fruit that pumps through and hints of licorice root, tobacco and warm earth. Shows lovely persistence through the finish, as the fruit and earth notes meld. Features a touch of old school, too. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2023 through 2035.” 92 Points, James Molesworth, March 2022

Jeb Dunnuck

“Plenty of classy damp earth and leafy herb notes as well as ripe plum and currant fruits emerge from the 2019 Château Le Boscq, a rich, nicely balanced, medium to full-bodied Saint-Estèphe. It’s a solid, outstanding, moderately tannic wine that will benefit from just short-term cellaring and have two decades or more of longevity.”Maturity: 2023 – 2044. 90 Points, November 2022

Food Pairing

It ideally matches red meats (e.g., bison steak with fig-balsamic sauce, grilled skirt steak, slowly grilled rack of lamb with mustard and herbs, roast beef with root vegetable salad, braised lamb with potatoes) and French mature cheese (both male, chevrotin, edam, Ossau Iraty, Tomme de Savoie, tête de Moine…).
