Chateau Lamothe-Bouscaut Pessac Leognan

Chateau Lamothe-Bouscaut Pessac Leognan

€42.95
 
"Château Lamothe Bouscaut is located in the village of Cadaujac and dates back to the 12th century. In 1999 it was acquired by its neighbor, Château Bouscaut, owned by Sophie Lurton and Laurent Cogombles. The Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines grown on the deep gravelly soils are on average 35 years old. The vineyards are sustainably managed and pruning is carried out by hand by five vineyard workers on the 9-hectare estate. The rich, plush palate of Château Lamothe Bouscaut is a result of a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and concrete tanks and then aged for 12 months in oak, 45% of which is new. Surprisingly approachable for its age, this 2012 Pessac-Léognan is ripe and generous and an excellent example of a fruit-forward modern Bordeaux that is delicious to drink.
