A terrific sleeper from the firm of Dourthe that owns this property, the 2010 Le Boscq is composed of 51 % Merlot, 46 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. Monsieur Olan is the consulting oenologist at this estate and seems to have hit pay dirt with the 2010, a major sleeper of the vintage. Opaque ruby/purple with oodles of creme de cassis, graphite and spring flowers, this wine also shows some intriguing foresty notes. Quite pure, rich, medium to full bodied with sweet tannin and adequate acidity, it will drink well for 10-15 years. A member of the Alliance des Crus Bourgeois.

The Chateau Leboscq has a light but well defined, very pure bouquet of blackberry, cedar and smoke, hints of orange rind developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins on the entry, good weight with dense, robust tannins and layers of toasty blackberry and plum towards the finish. Very fine! Tasted April 2011.

Offers a direct beam of blackberry and plum fruit, with a strong graphite edge holding sway on the finish. Good length. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Mid crimson. Solid and inky but just a bit too stolid to be exciting. Respectable for the long term. jancisrobinson.com

Well-extracted and quite vibrant cassis fruit, freshness, depth and potential complexity. Drink 2014-18. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com
