Château le Boscq Saint-Estèphe 2016

£43.99

Le Boscq’s attractive 2011 is drinking well now and for a few years more, with a nose of cedar, leather and dark fruits and a mid-weight rounded, elegant palate.

Description

Ch le Boscq’s majestic Chateau overlooks the Gironde estuary and their gravel and clay soils are ideally situated. Owned by Dourthe since 1995 they have splashed the cash and rebuilt the cellar and geo-mapped the vineyard to make sure the vines are in the best position; gravel outcrops promote optimal maturity of the later ripening varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, whilst the cooler terroirs on the slopes are best suited to Merlot, historically the predominant variety at Château Le Boscq now planted 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. The lighter structured 2011 is very attractive, with a nose of cedar, leather and dark fruits and a mid-weight rounded, elegant palate. This is drinking well now and for a few years more.
