Initially toasty on the nose, this wine offers a pleasant black-fruit core which shows good oak integration. Its juicy black-currant flavors are just beginning to show on the structured palate, and as it fills out, the flavors will be seamless. Drink from 2024.

Stylish cedar and lightly toasted spices mingle with ripe cherries, blue plums and violets. The palate has a very supple and charmingly fleshy side to it. Boasts long tannins which draw flavors of ripe plums and dark cherries into the deep, suave finish. Impressive. Try from 2022.

Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Bouscaut has an earth, tar and charcoal nose with a core of red and black currants and a waft of beef drippings. The medium-bodied palate has good intensity and depth with firm, grainy tannins, a lively backbone and great length.
