Château Bouscaut Blanc, Classified Growth of Graves, is a lovely expression of Sémillon with its very good ageing potential and its roundness turning over the years to refined aromas: the heart of our Sémillons is a 100 years old ungrafted plot. Sauvignon blanc gives the wine balance, freshness and wit as well as a lovely frame. Our Château Bouscaut blancs are vinified in 40 % new oak barrels and mature for around 10 months.

A spicy, toasty aroma sets the scene for this wine that shows considerable wood-aging flavors. These tones give richness on the palate, while the white fruit flavor and intense acidity offer promise for future enjoyment. Drink from 2023.

The 2016 Bouscaut Blanc was showing a bit of reduction on the nose that occluded some terroir expression. Indeed, there is a trait of Burgundy here, in the touches of lemon curd and beeswax. The palate displays a pleasant bitter lemon entry, fine acidity, a very waxy texture and a slightly smudged finish. It does improve in the glass, however, and attains spiciness and pepperiness. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

The Bouscaut 2016 Blanc opens with fresh lemons, lime leaves and green apples scents with wafts of chalk dust and white blossoms. Medium-bodied and crisp with a satiny texture, it has a long citrus-laced finish.

The 2016 Château Bouscaut Blanc shows the vintage's elegant, clean, classic style. Beautiful notes of citrus and subtle minerality all flow to a medium-bodied white that has a rounded, supple texture, good balance, and a clean finish. It's not going to make old bones but certainly will keep for 2-4 years.
