Dark in appearance, almost black. Its powerful, complex nose instantly reveals the characteristic le Boscq terroir, with its typical precious wood, spicy, cedar character, intermingled with ripe fruits, black cherry and cassis. The wine is incredibly silky on the attack, becoming more generous and concentrated, with abundant, extremely delicate tannins balancing well with the fruit. On the body, the wine shows remarkably well-balanced aromatic complexity and freshness, with a long and seductive finish. Overall, the wine is concentrated, generous and well-structured.
