Tasting Note

This is a real find - beautifully restrained, classy Bordeaux.  Dark purple colour.  Complex aromas of blackcurrant, mulberry, white pepper and vine leaves, with hints of savoury soy sauce and oyster shell.  In the mouth, there is impressive fruit concentration with gorgeously deep, succulent texture.  This is superb - it is drinking well already, and will continue to do so over the next decade or longer.

Situated in Cadaujac, 200 metres from Château Bouscaut, Château Lamothe-Bouscaut is an old wine estate owned by Sophie Lurton and Laurent Cogombles. The house dates back to the 12th Century.

The Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines grown on these deep, gravelly soils are on average 35 years old. The vineyards are sustainably managed, and pruning is carried out by hand by 5 vineyard workers on this 9 hectare estate.
