Château Bouscaut Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :This property has made pleasant noises over recent years about getting serious about quality, and the 2003 is one of their better efforts. Dark ruby-colored, with notes of compost, earth, cherries, and black currants, this medium-bodied Pessac-Leognan possesses a pinched, short finish, but pure fruit, low acidity, and an up-front personality that will reward early consumption. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

At Bouscaut we pride ourselves in producing wines that express the terroir in the purest tradition of the Classified Growths of Bordeaux. The Bouscaut reds have a strong Merlot character which makes them unusual for the region. Cabernet Sauvignon does however make up 40% of the blend, endowing it with a lot of sappiness. As for the Cot or Malbec varietal, it adds to our wine’s originality with its hint of easily distinguishable spiciness. Over the last few years our wines have become more accessible and pleasant when still young, than previously. They are of course also wines with great aging potential that remain attractive and exciting well beyond fifteen years, should you have the patience to wait for them. Our reds make a harmonious match for rare roast beef, herbed roast lamb accompanied with vegetables or creamy oven-baked potatoes… They can also hold their own with various types of game. Read less
