WINEMAKER NOTES

Located in Maumusson-Laguian village, in the heart of southwest France, Château Bouscassé is the family estate and the birth place of Alain Brumont. The terroir here covers over 50 hectares of clay and limestone land along a cliff. Moreover, it is called “Le pied de Côte Saint Emilion” since Tannat grows here, and produces a wine that lives up to the best Bordeaux reds from the right bank. Try with red or spicy meats, for example duck breast, Gascon food, Béarnaise food, Basque food.

TASTING NOTES

Powerful but elegant, subtle and well structured. Delicate fruit aromas with notes of blackberries and soft tannins. This wine has a good ageing potential.
