The 2019 Bouscaut has an attractive nose with black olive and plenty of black fruit, though the oak needs a few more months to assimilate. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, taut and crisp, harmonious with an elegant finish. Bon vin. The dark horse of Pessac-Léognan this year? Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting. Drink 2024-2040.
The 2019 Bouscaut wafts from the glass with a rich, ripe bouquet of jammy berries, burning embers and toasty new oak. Medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a fleshy core of fruit underpinned by a chassis of ripe, powdery tannin, this is a powerful, modern Pessac-Léognan in an impactful style.
