Reviews of Château Bouscaut 2014
The Château Bouscaut Red is a Grand Cru Classé de Graves. It is composed of 55% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Malbec, with older plants from 30 to 40 years who thrive on 40 hectares in a typical terroir of Pessac-Léognan. After manual harvest, winemaking begins with a passage in stainless steel vats before finishing with aging in new oak barrels for half, for 14 to 18 months. We find in this Grand Cru roundness and character, marked by the taste of the fruit and spicy aromas characteristics of Malbec.
A vintage 2013 bright and invigorating!
The 2013 Red Château Bouscaut is a Grand Cru in the very elegant garnet color. His nose, understated intensity is marked by subtle aromas of cassis and pine resin. The mouth, even if it is still powerful, keeps its "brilliance and minerality invigorating" (Gault Millau) without being too heavy, with very fresh tannins. In the final, hardiness is still present but will gain in roundness with time, since the castle Bouscaut Red 2013 is a wine that we can keep up to 10 years. It is used between 14 and 16 ° C with roasted meat or fish dishes.

PAIRING: Roast veal
Lucien Lurton, passionate winemaker, owner of numerous classified growths in the Médoc, buys Bouscaut in 1979 to North Americans. In 1992, he transmits this castle to his daughter Sophie Lurton who runs from the property.
Composed of 50% Merlot, this wine will ensure roundness and fruit. The Cabernet Sauvignon, meanwhile, represents 40% of the assembly and gives them a lot of sap. Cot or Malbec is at the heart of the originality of this wine, slightly spicy. Also of great guard, he will still be able to seduce you in fifteen years.
