Decanter average score for Château Bouscaut (Pessac-Leognan, Grand Cru Classé):
Lovely rich purple, highly reflective, as many are this year with their low ph and high acidity. Majoring on plum and blackberry fruits on the nose, with beautiful soft spicing. 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Malbec, good yields of 42hl/h. Tannic structure is firm, the malbec really makes its presence felt, giving a slightly exotic feel to this Pessac-Leognan. Again the lift on the finish is notable, this has good ageing potential, a little lean in the mid palate but it will flesh out over the oak ageing of the next year, as the tannins are astringent rather than bigger. Smoky coffee grinds and cloves on the aftertaste.
