Available for:
Deep, dark ruby in appearance. Sweet spices, with hints of white pepper and dark fruits pave the way for an elegant touch of cedar, so characteristic of the Le Boscq terroir. On the palate, concentrated, silky tannins - courtesy of the perfectly ripe Cabernet Sauvignon - are backed by juicy Merlot fruit. The wine culminates in all the finesse of a lengthy, savoury finish. Ideally matches red meats (eg. bison steak with fig-balsamic sauce, grilled skirt steak, slow grilled rack of lamb with mustard and herbs, roast beef with root vegetable salad, braised lamb with potatoes) and French mature cheese (bethmale, chevrotin, edam, Ossau Iraty, tomme de Savoie, tête de moine...).

This estate, dating to the 18th century and close to the Gironde estuary, has produced a rich wine. Young tannins and fine fruity acidity are both present in a wine that is serious and dense. Its weight, ripeness and the potential of the black-currant fruit will all allow it to age. Drink from 2022.

The 2014 Le Boscq is a sleeper for the vintage and shows just how well Saint-Estephe did in 2014. Succulent dark cherry, plum, smoke, gravel and cured meat notes all meld together in a deep, pliant wine endowed with notable depth and intensity. This is a fabulous Cru Bourgeois from the Dourthe family of estate.

The 2014 Le Boscq is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. It has a perfumed bouquet with brambly red berry fruit tinged with cedar and incense aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and quite tensile with lively blackcurrant and raspberry fruit, fine mineralité and a brisk, quite stony, grippy finish. Give this Saint Estèphe three or four years in bottle and you should have a fine Cru Bourgeois.

uicy, offering a mix of lively plum and red currant fruit underscored by wet stone and lilac accents. Gains depth with air, the finish pulling the fruit and mineral accents together. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2018 through 2022. 5,350 cases made, 80 cases imported.
