Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau Bouscaut Pessac Leognan 2016

Rated 94 by Wine Enthusiast
This Lurton family-owned property has upped its game in recent vintages and this wine shows the same progress. Rich tannins and dense black fruits deliver weight and concentration. The alcohol is balanced by the fresh black-currant-flavored aftertaste to give lushness without heaviness. Drink from 2025.
Rated 91 by Vinous Media
The 2016 Bouscaut has an appealing, understated bouquet of blackberry, cedar and humidor aromas, light touches of melted tar emerging with time. The medium-bodied palate is quite rounded in texture, offering sappy black fruit and a hint of clove and fennel toward the persistent finish, which fans out with confidence. Superb.

Winery Chateau Bouscaut

Region: Bordeaux

Although most commonly associated with their superb blended red wines, the world-famous region of Bordeaux in France is responsible for a relatively wide array of wines, ranging from the sweet and viscous white wines of Sauternes, to the dry and acidic single variety white wines found all over the region. However, it is the red wines which regularly make the wine world's headlines, and have historically been regarded as the finest on earth. The secret to the region's success is the fact that the warm and humid climate, coupled with mineral rich clay and gravel based soils produces grapes of excellent quality. Wineries in this region have spent hundreds of years mastering the art of blending and oak aging in order to get the best results from each grape, and remain the envy of the world to this day.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
