Château Bouscaut Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Pessac-Léognan Blanc 2011

Member Review by Jack Lynch:

Parker really disliked this one, but I found it much better than he gives it credit for. Powerful nose; smooth on first taste. Not as much fruit as I’d like, but notes of tobacco, cedar, chocolate-covered cherries, and tar. The tannins had mellowed nicely. Mid-length finish.

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
