2020 Château Le Boscq  (St. Estèphe) 91
With a touch of smoke, herbs, blackberries and spicy cassis on the nose, the wine fresh, sweet and juicy and a crisp, almost crunchy, red berry finish. Give this medium-bodied wine 3-5 years in the cellar before a cork. 90-92 Pts

2019 Château Le Boscq  (St. Estèphe) 92
The tobacco, wet earth, dark cherries, smoke, and spice nuances come through easily on the nose. On the palate, the wine is even better with loads of bright, fresh, spicy, chewy red berries with ample freshness. Rounding everything out, the finish lingers with a nice spicy touch with just a hint of chocolate in the endnote. Drink from 2024-2038.

With good color, the wine is fresh, fruity, round and deep. The finish is all about the ripe, juicy, earthy, blackberries, cigar wrapper, spice and espresso notes that carry. This is another top vintage for Chateau Le Boscq and will age quite nicely. The wine is blended from 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot with 2% Cabernet Franc. 91-93 Pts

2018 Château Le Boscq  (St. Estèphe) 92
Full-bodied, with layers of sweet, ripe, dark red fruits, round tannins, cedar, spice, coffee bean and earth all come together nicely. Rich, fruity and packed with ample, spicy, dark red berries and a supple textured finish. Give this at least 5 years in the cellar before pulling a cork.

Deep in color, the tobacco, cigar box, dark red fruit, vanilla and licorice aromas tell the story. With ample levels of ripe, lush, soft, polished textures and a juicy finish, this is a top vintage for Chateau Le Boscq and will age quite nicely. 91-93 pts

2017 Château Le Boscq  (St. Estèphe) 89
Ethereal maroon in hue, the wine is resonant with fleshy, vibrant fruit. The tannins are soft and only a few years are needed to bring out even more complexity.

2016 Château Le Boscq  (St. Estèphe) 92
There is intensity, concentration, depth of flavor and strong character here. The wine is packed with ripe, dark fruits, spice, earth and really delivers a serious mouthful of chewy fruit here. Clearly the best vintage of Le Boscq ever produced.

The color of that burgundy lipstick from 1986, this wine isn’t shy about showing off its soft, forward, ripe, sweet, dark red fruits, swanky textures and open style. This is the one your mother warned you about. You can drink her shortly after release and she will age well. Oenophile’s choice.

Oaky with a spicy, red berry personality, this medium-bodied wine is complicated by aromas of earth and tobacco. 85 - 87 Pts

2014 Château Le Boscq  (St. Estèphe) 88
The nose is oaky yet there is a wealth of ripe, dark, red berries and sweet earth bold enough to compete with the initial essence of oak. Give this wine a few years to develop and come together. 87-89 Pts

Medium bodied, tannic, with good freshness, smoke, tobacco, crisp blackberry and earth, this blend of 51% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot will definitely be better, and hopefully soften with 2-5 years of bottle age.

2009 Château Le Boscq  (St. Estèphe) 88
One of the better value wines from St. Estephe, from a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Petit Verdot, the wine is medium bodied with notes of coffee bean, dark cherries, stone and earth. Round in texture, there is a nice black raspberry sensation in the finish.
