Château-du-Bousquet Côtes de Bourg 2018

  • jd88-90


Available for:
Demonstrating a traditional Côtes de Bourg style, Château du Bousquet derives its character from an exceptional plot of small-berried Malbec. Characteristic richness combines with a finesse and aromatic precision that is rarely seen in Côtes de Bourg. Typically, Château du Bousquet offers powerful dark fruits and vanilla, with smoky hints. Despite its power, the palate maintains its perfect balance. Initial boldness gives way to solid structure and a long finish.

A terrific, possibly outstanding wine, the 2018 Château Du Bousquet checks in as a mix of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Malbec and Cabernet Franc. It offers pretty notes of black cherries, leafy herbs, underbrush, and touches of graphite and spring flowers. Medium-bodied, with a supple rounded, elegant texture and terrific overall balance, drink it over the coming 7-8 years.
