Winemaker Notes

Wonderfully deep in color, tinged with glints of purple. The wine is complex on the nose, combining the intensity of ripe fruits with notes of gentle spice, precious woods and tobacco. Initially soft on the palate, the wine gains in concentration, full-bodied and long, with bold, powerful tannins. A wealth of rich flavors is present throughout, culminating in notes of black berry fruit and spice. Typical Saint-Estephe.

Blend: 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc

The Barrel Sample for this wine is under 14% ABV.

*Please note that the Wine.com price of this Bordeaux Future does not include any tariffs. As of today, there remains a 25% tariff imposed on French wines by the U.S. and approved by the World Trade Organization related to the Airbus/Boeing trade dispute. We are hopeful that this tariff will be removed in advance of the wine being released to be imported into the U.S., as Bordeaux Futures typically ship 2-years after they are offered. Should any tariff still be in effect when the wine is ready to be imported, we will contact affected customers via email with an update to our plans and timing.

JS 95
James Suckling
Wow. This is a top young red with a very deep, rich palate of blueberry, chocolate and spice character. It’s full-bodied, yet so polished with intertwined tannins that give a creamy texture to the wine.
Barrel Sample:94-95

Wine Enthusiast
Strict tannins mark out the structure of this wine. While there is plenty of fine black fruitiness, the wine does have an initially austere character that is classic Saint-Estèphe. It will need time, but the potential is there.
Barrel Sample: 94-96

Decanter
A new Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel, owned by Vignobles Dourthe, here showing why it's an estate worth taking seriously. They have gone full power on the colour extraction here, and this is inky, medium to full intensity. A blast of blueberry and cassis fruit sets out their stall on the nose followed up by some mouthwatering slate and crushed stone texture that takes you along the palate. Really good quality, confident and enjoyable winemaking, with plenty of fine tannins and a spiced damson finish. 37% new oak, harvest September 23 to October 9. 2% Cabernet Franc completes the blend.

The 2019 Château Le Boscq has plenty of red and black currant fruit as well as ample cedary herbs, medium body, a backward, tight, structured mouthfeel, and beautiful length on the finish. My money is on it being an outstanding wine, yet I suspect 2-4 years of bottle age might be warranted as well.
Barrel Sample: 90-92
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Composed of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 le Boscq sports a deep purple-black color and expressive notes of baked black cherries, warm cassis and blackberry preserves with touches of pencil lead, bouquet garni, cast-iron pan and woodsmoke. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a good intensity of crunchy black fruits with a sturdy frame of grainy tannins and bags of freshness, finishing with a compelling herbal lift. Barrel Sample: (90 - 92)

Chateau Le Boscq, France
Chateau Le Boscq  Winery Image

Chateau Le Boscq’s reputation dates back to the conquest for the Medoc vineyard, when in 1749, Thomas Barton took over the tenancy at Chateau Le Boscq. For more than 30 years he dedicated his life to making wine of a quality repeatedly recognised, sometimes even at Cru Classé level, within the different classifications established in the 18th century by the courtiers and négociants in Bordeaux. At the end of the 19th century, Jean Grazilhon, whose grandfather was the estate’s steward working under Thomas Barton, become owner of the estate. He had the chateau built in 1891, a majestic residence enjoying views overlooking the Gironde estuary. For more than 30 years, he strived to produce high quality wines, paving the way for Chateau Le Boscq to be awarded Cru Bourgeois status in 1932. During this period, the estate’s wines were transported in barrels by barge as far as the port of Bordeaux. It is with reference to this historical fact, and to the location of the chateau by the estuary, that a barge now features on the labels as the emblem of the estate.

St. Estephe Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Deeply colored, concentrated, and distinctive, St. Estephe is the go-to for great, age-worthy and reliable Bordeaux reds. Separated from Pauillac merely by a stream, St. Estephe is the farthest northwest of the highest classed villages of the Haut Medoc and is therefore subject to the most intense maritime influence of the Atlantic.

St. Estephe soils are rich in gravel like all of the best sites of the Haut Medoc but here the formation of gravel over clay creates a cooler atmosphere for its vines compared to those in the villages farther downstream. This results in delayed ripening and wines with higher acidity compared to the other villages.

While they can seem a bit austere when young, St. Estephe reds prove to live very long in the cellar. Traitionally dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, many producers now add a significant proportion of Merlot to the blend, which will soften any sharp edges of the more tannic, Cabernet.

The St. Estephe village contains two second growths, Chateau Montrose and Cos d’Estournel.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
