Chateau Le Boscq Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel - AOC Saint-Estephe 2005 wine
Chateau Le Boscq features among the great classics of the Saint-Estèphe wine appellation. The first wine, Chateau le Boscq Cru Bourgeois, is a St-Estephe wine bursting with character, which elegantly combines the power of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, with the Merlot’s finesse, which is unusual for the appellation. Delicate and well-balanced, it has great ageing potential.
Traditional vinification, individual wine parcels vinified separately. Small capacity temperature controlled stainless steel -tanks. Vertical press to ensure gentle pressing.
Robert M. Parker.The Wine Advocate
this Cru Bourgeois, but 2005 is the finest vintage for these wines since 1982. The range of scores for these wines should give readers an idea of just how consistent this vintage is at this level. Given the style of the vintage, most of these wines should be accessible young yet evolve for a decade or more because of their concentration and tannic structure.
