Decanter: Touch of reduction on the nose – a sign that they are saving the best aromatics for the final drinker. This has a lovely shot of fresh citrus and apricot kernels. A little softer than vintages such as 2011, but good gentle minerality gives a sparkle on the finish. 89 Points

Tasting Notes
Wine Advocate: The 2015 White Bouscaut HAS an attractive bouquet with citrus lemon, lime and a touch of grapefruit, all well defined and nicely integrated with the oak. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, moderate complexity with satisfying weight in the mouth, ALTHOUGH it just needs a little more complexity to Develop on the finish That leaves an attractive spicy / lemongrass notes on the aftertaste. Not bad at all, though the competition is strong this vintage. 88 - 90 Points
Other Notes
The vineyard has existed since the seventeenth century under the name High Truchon. Chabanneaux the family acquired the castle in the late nineteenth century and changed its name in 1881, according to the locality where it is located: Bouscaut. In 1925 Victor Place and Count Rivaud bought the castle. Four years later Victor Place acquired the neighboring castle, the castle and its vineyards Valoux of ten hectares which will be attached to the Château Bouscaut. In 1953, the castle is retained in the classification Cru Classé de Graves for its white and red wines. Two fires (1961 and 1962) completely destroy the castle. In 1966, Robert Place, son of Victor Place, decided to rebuild the castle under the supervision of the famous Bordeaux architect L. M.Garros. The castle is sold in 1968 to a group of investors from New York and its management will be given to George Delmas, manager of Chateau Haut-Brion. He was finally acquired by Lucien Lurton in 1979, then owner of many wines in the Medoc. In 1992, his daughter, Sophie Lurton takes the castle. Since 1997, she directs the castle with its March Cogombles i Lawrence, also director of the Pessac-Léognan. After a restructuring of the vineyard, the couple transformed the facilities in 2010 with a barrel cellar
