Château La Boissière

AOC Bordeaux Supérieur Red

Owned by the Crampes family, Château La Boissière was built in the eighteenth century on slopes overlooking the right bank of the Garonne at the heart of the Bordeaux wine region between Sauternes and the Entre-Deux-Mers area, not far from Langon. The Crampes family has inhabited the château for more than a century. Out of respect for the environment and to offer a greater guarantee of quality, the estate obtained Agriculture Raisonnée (for integrated farming techniques) and “Terra Vitis” certification in 2005.

    TASTING NOTES

    A carefully presented Bordeaux Supérieur with a deep red hue, brilliant rim and youthful tints. The nose is intense and complex, combining fresh berried fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry) and discreet, toasty oak. A wine with typical flavours reflecting the large proportion of Cabernet, with an after-taste of menthol and black berried fruit. The generous palate is well-balanced, with a base of fine-grained tannin. Complementing the aromas found on the nose and again on the palate are hints of liquorice, blackberry and toastiness. A harmonious wine which will make an ideal accompaniment for a meal with grilled meat or cheese board on the menu.

    TASTING NOTES

    The result of an excellent Bordeaux vintage, this wine is a beautiful, sombre hue of red. The expressive nose opens with notes of black-berried fruit, handing over to a palate which is meaty on the attack, with perfectly matured tannins wrapped in silky, lingering extract. A touch of elegant toastiness is perceptible at the finish, the result of ageing in oak. A harmonious wine which will make an ideal accompaniment for grilled meat or a cheese as part of an informal meal.
