About Château Bouscaut:
The vineyard of Bouscaut exists since the XVIIth century on the commune of Cadaujac, in the appellation Pessac-Léognan formerly Graves.
Endowed with numerous medals, sung by famous regulars such as Louis Jouvet, Maurice Chevalier or Gilbert Bécaud ... the Bouscaut wine finds its consecration in 1953 with the coveted title of Graves Cru Classé for its white and red wines.
In 1961, a fire completely destroyed the castle: the cellars were spared. The owner, Robert Place, presides over its reconstruction by the Bordeaux architect Garros according to the same plans. He sold the property in 1968 to a group of investors from New York who entrusted the management of the vineyard to the stewards of Haut-Brion.
Finally, Bouscaut is acquired in 1979 by Lucien Lurton. Winegrower well known in Bordeaux and already owns a dozen other wines in various appellations including Margaux (Brane-Cantenac, ...), Barsac (Climens, ...) etc ...; This winemaker at heart has recognized Bouscaut an exceptional terroir.
Today, the 4th generation is in charge with Sophie Lurton, daughter of Lucien, to whom he gave the property in 1992. Since then, Sophie Lurton joins with her husband Laurent Cogombles, himself an ENITA engineer, to extract the best of this terroir orLes Bouscaut reds are composed of 50% Merlot grape which ensures roundness and fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon represents 40% of the blend and gives them a lot of sap. Cot or Malbec reinforces the originality of our wine with its slightly spicy tip well recognizable. These are also, of course, wines of great care that will seduce and fascinate well beyond 15 years if we know how to wait.
