Tasting notes

A powerful wine from the soils of St Estèphe, slate, graphite, very Left Bank, this is a brilliant Le Boscq that is serious, well structured, big black pepper finish. Mouthwatering levels of freshness also, this is a great value choice. 50% of the crop was lost to hail in June, giving 25hl/h yield overall.

Jane Anson, janeanson.com (May 2023)

An absolutely stunning Saint-Estèphe, the 2022 Château Le Boscq offers thrilling levels of plum and cassis fruits that slowly give way to more gravelly earth, licorice, and violet notes with air. Full-bodied, concentrated, and beautifully balanced, with remarkable purity of fruit, this is a seriously good 2022 that will need 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for decades. If it shows this well from bottle, it will easily be the finest wine I've tasted from this château.

Solid fruit here with spices like cardamon and cloves. Medium-bodied with a pretty core of fruit in the center palate and chewy tannins. Typical for the appellation.

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com (April 2023)

The 2022 Le Boscq is super-concentrated and yet also vibrant. Dark red/purplish fruit, cigar box, lavender, rose petal, licorice and pomegranate infuse the 2022 with notable depth. Yields were just 25 hectoliters per hectare after hail in June reduced the potential crop dramatically. This has real potential.
