I'm impressed with both colours of Bouscaut this year, but the red is the clear winner. Good firm tannins and some contemporary cocoa dusting, combined with a juicy finish. It really does have a luscious quality, just the right side of indulgently rich. Good, medium term drinking.

Ratings
Barrel Sample. Structured and dense, the wine has bold blackberry fruits and tannins like velvet. It is full-bodied with great acidity as well as generous fruitiness. One of the best from this estate. 93-95 Wine Enthusiast
