Château Le Boscq: Vineyards
As indicated in my profile this property is located close to the village of Saint-Corbian, in the modern-day appellation of St Estèphe. It enjoys a commanding position overlooking the palus and estuary. Located on the same gravel mound as the village, it is flanked by marshland and the Estey d’Un to the north, and by another drainage channel, the Chenal de Calon, to the south. On this mound its nearest neighbour is Château Beau-Site, but it is worth looking further north and south to fully understand the estate’s favoured position. Just on the other side of the Chenal de Calon, to the south is Château Calon-Ségur and its vines, while beyond the Estey d’Un to the north the land has the Haut-Médoc appellation. Here we find vines belonging to Château Sociando-Mallet, among others.
The restructuring carried out since 1995 has produced a vineyard of 18 hectares, planted at a fairly high density, typically 9,250 vines per hectare.Please log in to continue reading:
