Other Reviews....
The 2022 Le Boscq is super-concentrated and yet also vibrant. Dark red/purplish fruit, cigar box, lavender, rose petal, licorice and pomegranate infuse the 2022 with notable depth. Yields were just 25 hectoliters per hectare after hail in June reduced the potential crop dramatically. This has real potential. Drink 2025-2042.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

Smells fresh and fragranced, bright and clear. Crystalline fruit purity on the palate, such energy and focus too with bite and a cool blue fruit and graphite charm to this. Quite compact and tannic right now, through beautifully textured and controlled, just a little pent up, lovely confidence and concentration, the fruit is ripe and fleshy and you really do get the gravel terroir in the glass. Gorgeous frame and succulence, lovely refinement, and supreme drinkability. Great. 2% Cabernet Franc completed the blend. Ageing 12 months in oak barrels, 37% new, 4 batches in amphora. Harvest 9 September - 3 October. HVE certified.

Georgina Hindle - Decanter

Solid fruit here with spices like cardamon and cloves. Medium-bodied with a pretty core of fruit in the center palate and chewy tannins. Typical for the appellation.

James Suckling

An absolutely stunning Saint-Estèphe, the 2022 Château Le Boscq offers thrilling levels of plum and cassis fruits that slowly give way to more gravelly earth, licorice, and violet notes with air. Full-bodied, concentrated, and beautifully balanced, with remarkable purity of fruit, this is a seriously good 2022 that will need 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for decades. If it shows this well from bottle, it will easily be the finest wine I've tasted from this château.

Sweet, black currants, spice, tobacco leaf, and espresso nuances are all over the wine in the perfume, and on the palate. The fruits are ripe, creamy, and polished, with a display of chocolate, and black currants in the mid-palate and finish. Drink from 2025-2040.
