Deep ruby in colour. On the nose intense aromas of plum, blackcurrant and bramble are married with notes of cedar and spice. Firm but velvety tannins on the palate and a well-integrated acidity carry the flavours onto the long finish and give this wine great potential for ageing.

The Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines are planted on well draining, deep gravelly soils and are on average 40 years old. The vineyards are farmed sustainably and pruning is carried out by hand by five vineyard workers. Vines are trained using the simple Guyot system and fruit is harvested manually.

Château Lamothe-Bouscaut is located in the village of Cadaujac and dates back to the 12th century. In 1999 it was acquired by its neighbour, Château Bouscaut, owned by Sophie Lurton and Laurent Cogombles. The Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines grown on the deep gravelly soils are on average 35 years old. The vineyards are sustainably managed, and pruning is carried out by hand by five vineyard workers on the nine-hectare estate.
