Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Ripe and fruity with a deep and complex bouquet. Exquisite balance of fruit and oak, both vibrant, yet harmonious. Black cherry and plum before the nose is graced by a whiff of violet. Then the oak moves in with classic vanilla, clove, and barrel spices. An intoxicating perfume finished with fruit leather and freshly baked berry crumble. Fresh acidity and bold though fine-grained tannins. Palate is broad, echoing the nose in style and complexity. Finish is long with an encore of dark fruit and toasty oak. A very fine wine, crafted from approximately equal volumes of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and a pinch of Petit Verdot, drinking well in its youth. The best is yet to come. Imagine this in 2025 when the tertiary elements start to come into form and add another dimension to this already multifaceted wine. Enjoy with a fine cut of beef, roasted vegetables, fresh bread, and someone who can appreciate a wine of this calibre.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Beautiful and full of flavour. Aromas of currant, mocha, evergreen and dried herbs. Full bodied and smooth, with bright acidity and lots of luscious dark fruit on the palate. Perfect for red meat or robust rustic lentil and mushroom dishes.
Château Le Boscq 2015 is a Cru Bourgeois, mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a splash of Petit Verdot from the Bordeaux Wine Region. Great cellaring candidate for another five years to begin to show its best. The estate is owned by Bordeaux négociant Dourthe. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
