2014 Saint-Estèphe, Cru Bourgeois from Bordeaux.

The Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot vines grow on a wonderful rounded hilltop made of Garonne gravels on a clayey substrate. The 2014 Chateau Le Boscq is an ample Saint-Estèphe expressing intense and rich black fruits, blended with a cedar fragrance which brings freshness. This Cru Bourgeois attack is bold (good acid support) and evolves on a dense mid-palate - which gives substance to the wine - on a well-built tannic structure with skilfully extracted civilised tannins. This wine has a good ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Château le Boscq is a delightful Cru Bourgeois with blackberry and sous-bois on the nose, a swirl and there's a whiff of tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, fresh and focused with a touch of black pepper on the pretty finish, while maintaining Saint Estèphe-like austerity and typicité. This is highly recommended. Tasted September 2016.
