Chateau Petit Bocq 2005

Member Review by zufrieden:

Lots of sweet black licorice, blackberry and cedar box on the nose, and it opened up quite quickly upon cork removal; the Cabernet element seems quite prominent. On entry, the wine has a smooth, creamy texture with dissipating tannin; there is wet earth mixed with black currant on the palate with a medium length. An excellent wine ready now, but may keep for several more years. 89 points.

There was nothing to suggest either that our family, who were originally from Belgium, would one day become gentlemen farmers or that I myself would one day give up my microscope (I was a specialist doctor) and allow myself to fall in love with winegrowing. As you come to the end of the “Chemin de Bocq”, a path running through the hamlet of Marbuzet, you get a first glimpse of the vines. There are barely twelve thousand feet, almost exclusively “Merlot Noir” with the roots thriving on the clayey land whilst the leaves are lulled by a gentle breeze cooled by the nearby river.
