Tasting Notes
86-89/100 - Wine Spectator
This has a red plum and a red currant fruit
15,5/20 - Decanter
Elegant and polish with depth
89-91/100 - Wine Advocate
This has a light but well defined, very pure bouquet of blackberry, cedar and smoke. The palate is medium bodied with supple tannins on the entry. Very good weight with dense, robust tannins and layers of toasty blackberry and plum toward the finish. Very fine!

Philippe Marchal


The history of the Château
Locally, Boscq means a high spot. In the village of Saint Christoly, on the riverside of the Garonne, Château Leboscq is a hilly vineyard as high as 25m. The château Leboscq vineyard being always early, given micro climatic conditions, the vineyard acts for us as an indicator. It dictates some of our strategies toward the harvest year trends. These wines are extremely steady in a classical style, they are fresh with lively fruity aromas.
