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 whites are gorgeous and very elegant. Made of a blend of 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Sémillon, with small variations depending on the vintage, they show perfect balance. These are wines with excellent aging potential, wines to savour with refined cuisine. The Sémillon evolves superbly and is capable of infinite refinement, whilst providing beautiful opulence. The Sauvignon, on the other hand, provides the wines with a defined, lively and sappy character, with precise, upfront attractive aromas, right from the start of the wine’s life.
