Situated in Cadaujac, a few miles south east of Bordeaux city, Château Lamothe-Bouscaut is an historic wine estate with its origins dating back to the 12th century. Today the property is owned by Sophie Lurton and Laurent Cogombles.

 

The vineyards cover 12 hectares with 9 hectares being in current production. The soil is composed of deep gravel and the vines have an average age of 35 years.

 

The 2015 Lamothe-Bouscaut rouge is 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

After a manual harvest the grapes are fermented in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks followed by ageing in oak barrels for 12-15 months.

 

Deep red colour in appearance, the nose is very attractive and expressive with lots of black fruit, liquorice and spicy aromas. The palate is full and rounded with layers of ripe fruit, hints of cedar and soft, supple tannins.
