Wine Advocate-Parker : 88/90 Points
The 2015 Le Boscq is a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, representing a higher percentage of Cabernet due to new plantings in recent years. Raised in 30% new oak, it has a tight-knit bouquet with blackberry, cassis and iodine scents. The palate is pretty on the entry. It is not a Saint Estèphe with enormous depth, but it boasts a silky finish and offers plenty of salinity and freshness. Enjoy this over 8-10 years.

Very dark purple. Beautifully attractive 'mineral' scents. Very direct and very St-Estèphe. Masses of ripe fruit on the palate. 17 Jancis Robinson, MW
Other Notes
Château le Boscq sits at the far northern end of Saint Estèphe with it’s fine late 19th Century mansion commanding fine views over the River Gironde, and the southern portions of the vineyard gazing across the Chenal de Calon at Calon-Ségur. Unusually for this part of the Haut-Médoc, the majority of Le Boscq’s vineyard – 60% - is planted with Merlot which accounts for a rounder fleshier style to the wine. Of note, historically, is that the Barton family owned Château le Boscq before they moved south to Léoville and Langoa in Saint Julien. Since 1995, le Boscq has been in the ownership of Bordeaux négotiant and merchant Dourthe
