The remarkable 2009 Bouscat La Gargone which is even better from bottle than it was from barrel is a blend of 60% Merlot 20% Malbec 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The remarkable 2009 Bouscat La Gargone which is even better from bottle than it was from barrel is a blend of 60% Merlot 20% Malbec 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Consultant Claude Gros certainly got things right as this tips the scales at a California-like 15.9% natural alcohol. An absolutely sensational nose of white chocolate intermixed with blackberry jam licorice incense and white flowers soars from the glass of this opaque full-bodied sensationally concentrated wine that has no hard edges. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. This is a major over-achieving 20-acre south-facing hillside vineyard just in the shadow of Fronsac.

Thick and sweet but with shape and energy too. Dense dark berry flavors are complicated by bitter chocolate and mint. Finishes with broad horizontal tannins that saturate the entire palate. Remarkably round seamless and satisfying wine with amazing length for a Bordeaux Superieur. And boasts more energy than most California cabernets at the same octane level.

Opaque purple core with a brighter fuchsia rim. Melted licorice incense and dark chocolate combine with bright red fruit and aromas of purple flowers on the nose. Medium to full bodied with an appealing creamy texture... Opaque purple core with a brighter fuchsia rim. Melted licorice incense and dark chocolate combine with bright red fruit and aromas of purple flowers on the nose. Medium to full bodied with an appealing creamy texture this offers loads of red fruit along with spiced plum and black fruit flavors before finishing with a touch of baking chocolate. This is drinking well now but has ample weight and bright acidity to see it through another 3-5 years.
