Gelegen tussen Calon-Ségur en Sociando-Mallet met uitzicht op de Gironde, kortom gelegen op een van de allerbeste terroirs van Saint-Estèphe. Elk jaar meer cabernet in de blend (nu ongeveer 50/50 met merlot, de rest petit verdot). Overweldigend paars fruit, zwarte bessen, cassis en braam, fluwelen tannine. Toets van munt en kruidigheid, minerale expressie, lang en sappig!
The 2015 Le Boscq is a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, representing a higher percentage of Cabernet due to new plantings in recent years. Raised in 30% new oak, it has a tight-knit bouquet with blackberry, cassis and iodine scents. The palate is pretty on the entry. It is not a Saint Estèphe with enormous depth, but it boasts a silky finish and offers plenty of salinity and freshness. Enjoy this over 8-10 years.

Very spicy and fresh with floral and currant character. Full to medium body and regal structure and intensity. Chocolate, tea and berry flavors. Tannins are polished and focused. Excellent finish.
The 2015 Château le Boscq was one of the standouts in my Cru Bourgeois tasting and this cuvee comes from a 18-hectare estate in the northern part of the Médoc planted to 48% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with around 4% Cabernet Franc. This beautiful, medium to full-bodied, balanced 2015 offers textbook Saint-Estèphe notes of ripe black fruits, tobacco, and damp earth. It’s not a massive wine by any stretch, yet has terrific purity, density, and length, with nicely integrated acidity.
