Description

Bouscaut was then acquired in 1979 by Lucien Lurton, a well known Bordeaux winemaker who already owned at least ten other prestigious châteaux in appellations such as Margaux (Brane-Cantenac), Barsac (Climens)... This passionate vine-lover recognised the potential and exceptional terroir of Château Bouscaut. Sophie Lurton, Lucien’s daughter has been looking after Bouscaut since 1992. Laurent Cogombles, her husband, an agricultural ingeneer, has been very involved too since 1997. Laurent  is also the present president of the appellation Pessac-Léognan.

The Bouscaut reds have a strong Merlot character which makes them unusual for the region. Cabernet Sauvignon does however make up 40% of the blend, endowing it with a lot of sappiness. As for the Cot or Malbec varietal, it adds to the wine’s originality with its hint of easily distinguishable spiciness. Over the last few years the wines have become more accessible and pleasant when still young, than previously. They are of course also wines with great aging potential that remain attractive and exciting well beyond fifteen years, should you have the patience to wait for them.
