Ook al zo’n wijn die ruim 25 jaar onafgebroken deel uitmaakt van onze collectie. Een wijn met veel concentratie, opwekkend zwart fruit, specerijen, mooie zuren en rijpe tannines. Zal zich fantastisch ontwikkelen.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 le Boscq features expressive notes of baked blackcurrants, blackberry pie and stewed plums with wafts of Provence herbs, cigar box and black pepper. Full, concentrated and supported by firm, chewy tannins, it has soft acid and an herbal lift on the finish.
This has a beautiful sense of cabernet sauvignon with blackcurrant, blackberry and hot-stone character throughout. Medium to full body, tight and integrated tannins and a flavorful finish.
This is savoury, juicy and full of flavour. 2018 is the first year that the new Cabernet Sauvignon plantings have been incorporated into the grand vin and you can feel their weight. The vines are getting older, and so proved more resistant to the weather in this vintage. This is a lovely Le Boscq with real Médoc classicism, showing a graphite edge, and will provide excellent medium-term drinking. Terra Vitis and HVE3 certified (as with the rest of the Dourthe portfolio).
Drinking Window 2025 - 2036
The 2018 Château Le Boscq offers a beautiful note of pure crème de cassis, spring flowers, and a touch of gravelly minerality. While I wasn’t able to get the blend, this is normally close to equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and it’s medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, and has both richness and elegance. It’s a rock star of a Cru Bourgeois that will benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 10-15 years or more.
